Blankets and Thrums

 

 

Leftovers

After the baby blanket was finished, there was a little warp left over, so we wove a ten inch long scrap the width of the warp (not quite 35 inches wide)…

trimmings

…which was cut into three approximately square pieces.

.

Backstitch

We turned the edges over once about 1/4 inch and backstitched about 1/8 inch from the edge…

.

Herringbone

…then herringbone-stitched the raw edges.

Blankets

We now have three beautifully soft handwoven cotton Hitty-blankets…

Thrums

…and the cat made a nest in the huge pile of thrums!

    • We are happy to have ended up with enough leftover that we could make some Hitty blankets…they are soft and drape very nicely. I think Thrums were used as stuffing in days of yore…I stuffed a doll with wooden thrums once!

  1. What a great ending to this blanket story…the hittys look so comfy and happy…and cat finally got her/his own yarns to paw and lay on.

  2. and now everyone in the cupboard is cozy and warm,,,including the feline helper! Lovely little blankets. You are so clever and talented!
