Two Toned

I’ve been a bad blogger.

But I have been creating -mostly sewing- new things. Well, I guess the same things in different colors, but that still counts, right? Anyway.

I wasn’t planning on making turnout blankets but here we are!

I’ve been trying to think of a different way to make the gussets. These are ok, but if I can figure out how to make them better, I will!

I also want to see if I can get that binding thinner and more in scale.

I haven’t made time to experiment with the ideas though. Soon, hopefully!

A tail cord:

And a strap at the front that fastens with velcro:

The way I make blankets has changed so much over the past few years, so I’m tempted to re-make Pharoah’s now.

This is a personal piece and will not be for sale, or others made available to sell. Sorry! 😦
