Now that my mojo has been found, hiding in a drawer would you believe, i decided to have a go at the blanket making project i posted about a few weeks back (see post here)
I chose a patterned and a plain fleece for the project so it would have a reversible design.
I layered them and used safety pins to keep them together while i trimmed the edges square.
I made a 4 x 4 inch template to cut off the corners then used it to draw 1 1/4 inch lines down the edge which would be my knotted tassels
Snipping the bottom of the folded tassels was the trickiest part as you dont want the slit to be too large or the knot wont be tight enough.
I carried on like this all around the fleece and finally got this
And the beauty of the whole thing is that it took me less than 2 hours to make. Yes, honest!
I couldnt resist modelling it to test its warmth on a chilly day like today so feel free to have a chuckle
This isnt meant to be a 'how to' post as the link to the snapguide above does it much better than me.
I dont know whether to give it away or keep it and snuggle up in it on cold nights in front of the telly whilst munching tasty things.
Give it a go, its so quick and great fun.
Just off now to let my aching fingers recover
