My mom has made blankets before... but she perfers that I buy them. By the time you buy the fabric, webbing, buckles, and get a pattern layed out you could just buy a blanket. I like looking at nicely used or sale items. The winter blankets are also harder to sew. The webbing and fabric and make it pretty thinck and if you arent handy with a sewing machine you need to have spare needles.
It isnt impossible, just can end up being more of a headache then you bargined for.
It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.
