By: Diane from CraftyPod

Get ready for the smartest idea ever. The Couples Compromise Blanket is a DIY blanket that will solve one of the most common arguments between couples - the temperature battle. When one partner is hot and the other is cold, this blanket will come to the rescue.

One side is warm, cozy fleece and the other side is breathable, lightweight cotton, so both people can be comfortable. This amazing blanket is quick, easy, and would make a great DIY wedding gift for newlyweds. Make this blanket to ensure peaceful sleep and harmony between couples.

Adorable but still not practical at my house. My cra-cra husband would still claim he did not have all of the cover. My trick, have another blanket.

This is a nice idea and I could see it more for kids, however, these days, kids don't share beds like they did back in the day! I think the ribbon visual is clever, but if your partner is a blanket their, doesn't matter. Solution, make two separate blankets, each to your own warming needs, make them a bit more,than twin size and problem solved. Yes, it will take some smoothing when you make the bed, but solves the hogging issue!

This idea is priceless. However, the issue in our bedroom is that my dear sweet husband is a cover hog. I don't get any of it, period. Over the years, I've learned to live with it and if I went through all the trouble to make this, I promise you, he would hog it all.

OL..we have the same husband is a blanket thief. I also sew satin ribbon down the middle of our blankets so he can get a visual of what's happening..getting a lot more sleep these days!!! I also marked my kid's bedding when they were younger to help them evenly distribute blankets when they were learning to make the bed..worked like a charm.

We have our own version of this at our house...flannel sheets, covered on one half with regular sheets. He gets the flannel top sheet folded in half and the flannel side, I get the regular sheet side with regular top sheet. Not sewn together, but creative folding and placement helps this work for us!
