Welcome to my shop where you will find accessories created from vintage and recycled linens, lace and fabrics together with a selection of vintage and upcycled sewing supplies - including vintage lace. Accessories featuring original embroidery, in association with felting, hand dyeing, fabric painting and crazy patchwork may be found in my other shop 'Lynwoodcrafts'.
A beautiful blanket or throw, crafted from a carefully chosen vintage tablecloth and printed cottons, combined with crochet in white, lilac and green.
Squares featuring embroidered motifs were cut from a vintage tablecloth. The central square is new embroidery, worked in matching threads on a blank portion of the cloth. Additional squares were cut from printed cottons - some vintage. Each fabric square was blanket stitched to a backing of new fleece fabric to provide a 'blanket weight' and cosy feel. By working into the blanket stitches, each square panel was given a border of crochet using white, lilac and green yarns.These panels were crocheted together.
Several rounds of crochet, and a scalloped edging in white, complete the blanket.
This blanket represents more than 60 hours of work! It would look lovely as a coverlet for a single bed and could be used as a topper on a standard double - perhaps over a lovely vintage 'counterpane'.

Small repairs have been made to the vintage embroidery using matching threads. I have pre-washed this item on a cool wool cycle and then dried it (as flat as possible) in a warm place - this worked well and I would recommend the same approach.Dimensions -
