Blanket coat #3

Third coat done! This one from a grey bush blanket made from 50% wool &  50% any other fibre you can think of (I even found fishing line in the fabric!!!). Go figure! This mix means it hasn’t felted up with a hot wash and tumble dry. 

It’s light weight compared to the felted wool blankets from the previous two coats and so folds differently at the front too. 

One happy big sister! She calls it her medieval ‘Queen of the Rings’ coat!



The blankets are lining up now… next will be a camel coat with a new look collar… each one takes approximately one and a half hours max (including cutting the pattern). 🌪

Stay warm,

Upcycled Vintage Wool

Any big occasion calls for bunting!

 …and a ‘vintage’ birthday calls for vintage bunting of course!

I’ve been busy making bunting for my big 50! Is 50 considered vintage?

The gathering will be outside on a cool Australian winter’s night. We’ll have braziers glowing and hot soup on tap. I’ll put out all the crochet granny rugs I can find and the  vintage wool blanket bunting will be swaying in the breeze (hopefully not sagging in the rain!).
