Heart blanket

This blanket plays on the heart shape. I know it’s appropriate for the time of the year, but I hadn’t planned it that way. It’s just the design that came to mind when I started working with these materials. 

It is made with a mix of Fairtrade and recycled material (the area of small flowers running along one side comes from an 80s frilled skirt).  

The edging and the backing are made with a piece ofsoft cotton ( small white and red stripes), from my collection. The other pieces come from a UK Fairtrade company. 

The wadding comes from a woolly (blue) blanket. 

All stitching is done by hand.

Size 60 x60 cm blanket. 

Selling now on Etsy !
