|Over the past few years I have been collecting recycled wool blankets.|
My craft cupboard is now bulging and I have had to put a stop on buying any more blankets. I am determined to use them all up. So today I set out to design a Dolls Blanket. I had visions of making my own bias binding and trimming the blanket in homemade bias binding
|Unfortunately the sewing machine and I had words and I had to go back to the drawing board. I ended up with a different design from what I had first envisioned in my head but I have to say I like it more that what I had first thought of.|
I used a lovely recycled blanket in soft pinks and greens, the back I have lined with Calico.
|Across the top a strip of beautiful fabric on which I have stitched hand dyed felt flowers and leaves. |
.All ready to wrap around some little girls precious doll.
