attack of the army blanket
I finally found time and the heart to start cutting up an old swiss army blanket to make into cushions and also bags. I am always unsure what to do in situations of historic remnants. When I bought the blanket it felt kind of gloomy and yuk, and made me think of where it had been. So I washed it and now it seems to have a new life and hopefully a happier one.... Although I must remember to shut my sewing / computer / study door as young Arthur decided to get handy with the scissors and cut into a nice 50x50cm piece yet to be made. Oh well guess that cushion will lose a few centimetres now.
