Denim Blankets

6 Oct

I have four small denim blankets ready to go now. The other day, I got two of them listed on eBay. Next week I plan to list the other two on Etsy.

The first one is a regular blanket. They are made from ‘recycled’ jeans. All the pieces were cut by hand from used jeans. I have avoided any major stains, however there are some pieces with the washed-out look and there may be some very small, unnoticeable stains.

The back is a blue and white check soft flannel. The knots are done with red yarn.

The blanket is about 48” long by 34.5” wide so it is a crib size or a throw blanket/lap robe.

The second blanket is a frayed denim top. The back is finished just like the other one.  This one is about 45.5” long by 32” wide and the knots are blue.

Head on over to my shop, grab a blanket and get cozy! It’s been cold here the last couple days so that sounds great to me! Let me know what you think of the blankets! Next I would like to start working on some bigger ones.

Old Congress Days

3 Oct

The big day is past now! I set up a booth at the local Old Congress Days event. It was a lot of fun even though I didn’t sell all that much. Mom & Dad were there to help – I couldn’t have done it with out them!

I had a bunch of the hanging hand towels on display. And I had the big doily out.The table above held greeting cards and denim blankets. On the other table I had my doilies, hairnets, and baby hats & booties.

Here are some of my doilies. This table met with disaster, well all of them did, but the white doilies got the worst of things. In the afternoon we got wind and a dust storm. Everything started flying. We took our stuff down early and lots of others did, too. Everyone was hanging onto their tents so they wouldn’t go crashing around. The lady behind me had a rough time as she was selling Scentsy -lots of breakables! While Mom & Dad finished our booth, I helped them box up the warmers.

Since I didn’t sell much at Congress Days, I now have all this inventory for my online stores! I hope to get it posted in the next couple weeks.
