Stitching…

Hello,my dear friends!

How are you and what are you crafting lately? Hope that, whatever you are doing, it makes you happy and brightens your moments! πŸ™‚ Autumn is a perfect time to take care about ourselves and our loved ones.. πŸ™‚

I have to admit that I’m quite busy these days…. crafting gifts,making important decisions with my Big man, tidying up the hidden corners of our home… but I needed a break and had to try myself in some blanket stitching… just because I wanted to…

I crafted these two scottie dogs using a template found here and after some attempts turned out quite badly,I’m rather satisfied with the blue dog… It is not perfect but I’m on a good way…. I don’t like the pink one..

Happy about my learning the blanket stitch I decided to try myself on a slightly bigger project…. When I moved here in Parma, the very first home accessories were bought by my Mother and Sister in law under request of my Big man…. ahem….not exactly a situation I wanted to find myself in…. but you know….. sometimes one has to keep the mouth shut and just try to live in peace….. well,the shopping was done in IKEA store …. did I already tell you that I HATE IKEA STUFF…? …. so…. I spent all this timeΒ  “destroying” the stuff I had at mine but there are things that I couldn’t just throw away…. like an ugly and appalling and unpleasant to touch pile blanket…. because my companion thinks that it is useful…. (….and you know…..all the effort that his relatives … ahem….I have some cough problems tonight….)…..

So… since I had at home some yarn of similar quality I cut off it’s “decorative ” (…. ahem… ) edge and stitched all around….

Inspired by some photos found on Pinterest I crocheted a nice edging….

…. and applied on it a crocheted heart, always using the blanket stitch…..

The blanket is still unpleasant to touch but now my bed has a more personal look…. and I feel much better and more at mine… πŸ™‚

To crochet the edging I followed this chart… quite a nice blog with so much sweet stuff….

So,please,tell me, what do you think about my blanket makeover? What would you have done if you were in my shoes?

Wish you all a great evening!

Love

    • Thanks for the idea ❀ I do not know if it is worth the effort (moreover because I'm not good in sewing…) but if I'll find a suitable fabric I'll sew it on…
