My Favorite Yet!
This project was inspired by the Patchwork-Trimmed Baby Blanket in Heather Ross' Weekend Sewing. The body is two pieces of thrifted wool that were felted by washing in hot water and drying on high several times. My blanket is a lap size :: about 45" x 58". The binding is constructed a little differently than I've done in the past so it was a great way to learn something new.
Instead of leaving the zig-zagged seam exposed (where the two pieces of wool come together) I decided to sew a patchwork piece on top. It allowed me to really feature the fabrics that were used in the binding.
This was a super fun project and a great way to use up scraps. Ideas are definitely swirling for more versions of this one!
