One Layer Down – Reclaimed Yarn Baby Blanket

img_20180715_214258965_ll.jpg

It took quite a bit of stitching, and quite a bit of yarn scraps, but the first layer is done!!! When I started, I took two pieces of water soluble stabilizer, and put yarn scraps from the factory between them. Then I stitches them down a bit, and then just threw it in my embroidery machine and let it go! After about 4 hours of embroidery time, I simply washed out the stabilizer. I have one more layer for the back, which is going to be gorgeous, and then that will also form the binding.

Next time, I have a few different ideas on how to do it, but we’ll see how this turns out!

Wish me luck!

Baby Blanket Made From Factory Scraps!

I’ve been a bit busy, but you know that’s always the case. Now the country fair is around the corner, and I’m just finishing up this baby Blanket. It’s made from factory scraps from the knitting mill I work at. I love it, because it looks great, and it’s keeping acrylic waste out of land folks. It’s a win-win for upcycling!!!

It’s made by sandwiching a bunch of scraps between two pieces of water soluble stabilizer, and just stitching the hell out of it. I’ll show you the wanted version tomorrow!!!
