In these difficult times, I continue to work from home. I am only selling items which can be posted via the Post Box which is just outside my gate. I have a stock of stamps and packaging materials and, therefore, can stay open for business without imposing extra risk on other individuals. As usual, accessories featuring original embroidery, in association with felting, hand dyeing and fabric painting may be found in my other Folksy shop - 'Lynwoodcrafts'.
A beautiful blanket, crafted from a carefully chosen vintage embroidered tablecloth combined with crochet in white, with accents of lime green, yellow, orange and chocolate brown, to tone with the embroidery.
Twenty squares, featuring embroidered motifs, were cut from a vintage tablecloth. 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, yellow, chocolate brown and green yarns (mainly acrylic with one cotton and one merino blend). To complete the blanket, a further five squares were crocheted, with a central floral motif, in the same yarns. The resulting 25 squares were crocheted together to from the blanket.
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 topper on a single bed and it is a generous size for use as a lap blanket.

46 inches by 46 inches approx. (117 cm x 117 cm approx.)
I have washed similar blankets in a mchine on a gentle wool cycle and dried them as flat as possible. This blanket should not be ironed.
I love to repurpose vintage textiles - giving them a new and more up-to-date purpose.
