Blankets from 2006

These are the blankets I made back in 2006. I used old wool sweaters that I washed hot and dried hot to 'felt' them. Then I cut squares, sewed them together and sewed them onto soft, fuzzy blankets. I rolled the edge of the blankets over to make the 'bindings.' On one I sewed shell buttons. On the other I stitched all the way around each square to give stability and structure. It was a fun project, and I got some sweaters by the pound (cause they had holes in them or were already wrongly washed) for not much money. I also rescued a few sweaters of my dh's and mine that I had ruined. Always nice to have a way to redeem oneself from laundry disasters!
