this project was a challenge for me from beginning to end.
Although, with some help from friends and
family, the throw is complete and I just love the way it turned out.
materials and equipment
tailor's chalk, tape measurer and long ruler
solid color fabric, preferably with a good drape so that it hangs well.
floral fabric with motifs that can be cut out
pins, needle, and sewing thread
embroidery needle and floss
i decided to make the throw into a larger more functional sized blanket,
that my boys and I could snuggle
up with whether on the couch, or in a park...
or that the sweetest little girl in the entire world
could have her six month old photographs taken atop.
i added a quilters batting and backed the throw with a lovely Amy Butler fabric.
