Anyway, I'm taking the baby blanket in today.
It's cute. I can see why the Mom wanted a blanket made from this. But, what I did is not what should have been done with this. There were things I said I'd try that I couldn't do. I couldn't sew it right sides together and turn it. The fuzzy right sides shifted too much and I couldn't keep it from bunching. Wrong sides together is a knitted texture and that didn't walk so much.
I did serge around the edge and then sewed a line a half inch in from that for stability. I wanted to sew a hashtag across it to hold the two layers together for laundering, but I couldn't get that to work. The fabric is stretchy and I don't have the skills to sew two stretchy fabrics together. And, wasn't all that innerested in learning them. So, I sewed two stability basting stitches along the center line. I hope that will help keep it from separating in the wash, but I won't swear to it. And, I'm not laundering it to find out.
That's it for me. Almost halfway through the workweek. I have a class with Edyta Sitar coming up. We're going to make tree blocks. I'm going to fellowship with other quilters. Time to check on that supply list. I know I own everything I'll need.
But, will I be able to find it?
Have a great day! Lane
