Right before Christmas, I showed you this stack of wool pieces I'd salvaged from a Hudson Bay blanket. It was an old, worn blanket with holes that my friend Susan had received in a box lot at an auction. She didn't want it and knew I liked to play with wool, so she gave it to me.
(The blanket pictured is from LL Bean and is priced at $495!)
I cut it in the direction of the stripes, and then cut out and got rid of sections with the holes. Then I sewed it back together in strips, and sewed the strips together. It was really a pretty fast project.
No way does it look like the original, but I like the way it turned out. It really doesn't fit the style of my house (because I don't live in a log cabin) but we'll use it for a nap blanket or a TV blanket.
Do you think I should finish the edges? A satin blanket binding might feel nice, but take away from the rustic feel of the blanket.
