These personalized throw blankets are a perfect, easy gift idea. You can make these right at home with any Cricut machine you have. I used the Cricut Joy since my monograms weren’t any larger than 4.5″. Personalized blankets are great to give by themselves or as part of a gift basket or family gift idea.
How to Make Personalized Blankets with a Modern Monogram
To make these personalized blankets you’ll need:
- Throw Blanket – I used one from London Fog we found at Sams Club. I bought one and everyone kept fighting over it so I bought 3 more!
- Cricut Machine – I used the cute little Cricut Joy for this one.
- Iron-On Vinyl
- Cricut EasyPress or Iron
- Cricut EasyPress mat or towel
To make it just open up this project in Cricut Design Space & click “customize”. You’ll want to edit the initials to the ones you need for your project. To edit the text you’ll need to detach and ungroup each set of initials, double click & edit the letters, then re-group and re-attach for ease of use & to keep your monograms together when cutting!
Cut using the Cricut machine you have (don’t forget to turn the mirror on).
Cut each monogram out & weed the extra vinyl off.
Heat press the iron-on vinyl onto the blankets. Make sure to check the heat settings with Cricut for the machine/iron you have and the fabric that your blanket is made out of.
Repeat for all your blankets!

A personalized blanket is a great gift on it’s own. Tie with a ribbon or place in a gift bag and it’s good to go. You can also add personalized throws to a gift basket. Gift baskets are fun to give as a family gift as well. Here are some ideas:
