Used Moving Blankets For Sale – Adding a sewing machine to the combination makes for an endless range of choices. There are several fun colors and designs and textures available. This article provides some ideas which will get you on your way to making fleece blankets for everybody on your list.
Fleece is excellent to use especially because the cut edges are clean and do not require hemming. To make the blanket, pick a minimum of two colours or patterns of fleece which look nice together. Often I will get three pieces — two that I will use for the primary body of this quilt and a third which I use as an accent. Fleece comes in different designs and textures so feel free to mix and match.
The dimensions of this blanket is dependent on what it’ll be utilized for. Make it a meter roughly square if you would like to put on the floor for a baby to play. For a vehicle seat or stroller, make it a half meter wide and 3/4 of a meter long. There’s no ‘right’ size for a blanket, it all is dependent on how you would like it to be utilized.
As soon as you have the bits which you are going to use for the primary body of this blanket you are prepared to cut. Cut the pieces into panels. This is where your imagination comes in. If you want two panels – an idea would be to cut one wider than the other. Another option is to use three panels of one pattern and one of the other. Sew the pieces together with a straight stitch. Following the right stitch you will return over the seam again but now with all the seam opened so it sits flat. I use a scallop stitch for this.
Once you have all of the pieces sewn together and have flattened the seams with the scallop stitch you are all set to give the blanket a nice border. If you are going to earn a good deal of blankets, you will find rulers you can buy from the fabric notions area that guide you in cutting scalloped or bead borders. If you do not have a rolling cutter you are really missing something. You will also require a cutting mat to use this. For a couple of blankets are fine, but if you think you’ll be earning more, I highly recommend the small investment.
If you have a ruler with the different borders, pick the border you would like to use and either mark the fabric and cut it with scissors or use the roller cutter and ruler collectively. You can also make a nice edge using a regular ruler. Draw a straight line across the entire border of the quilt.
Now you are all set to bring some accents. There are so many ideas for this and I encourage you to explore anything that sounds interesting. You can cut out portions of the pattern of one fabric and scatter and sew them onto the other panels. You can cut long strips of this accent pattern and sew them in a diagonal. It is possible to make it easy and not add any accents. You can cut out butterflies, hearts, flowers, etc. . sew them onto a panel. Use your imagination.
