SF Good Questions: Can I Alter a King-Size Velour Blanket?

AT:SF,

Has anyone ever altered a king size velour type blanket into a queen size?

I have a nice, fairly new, king size lightweight velour/fleece type blanket. I now use a queen size bed. I would like to make the blanket narrower so I can make the bed without having to tuck in the sides but have the sides not hang to the floor. Can I just cut off a bit from one side? Will it unravel? Or should I cut and sew down a small hem on one side?

Thanks,

Jean

Jean,

We'd opt for the hem. Besides avoiding the possibility of unraveling (does anyone know if velour unravels?), it will look more finished.
