Snug Throw with Bling Trim

 

Chadstone yesterday, I went in search of a new throw for the couch …. I wanted grey / charcoal as I am often wearing dark clothes and don’t want a pale lint around.

The 1st homewares shop I went into I spied this cuddly soft throw …. but oh! … the edge binding was so cheap and nasty that I looked further. Nothing else jumped out at me so back I went to purchase this throw for a princely sum of $30 after all discounts! … a great buy and hopefully I would have some remnant at home to do a new edge.

My big stash of fabric yielded a ‘bling’ oyster grey piece that was just enough  …. 3 x 1.5m lengths and I would have to join a 4th ….. easy! …Each strip 4″ wide and then I set to work, first to press a seam allowance on one side …. the other I attached to the underside of the throw in from the existing edge strip.

Once stitched, the edge strip was turned over to the front, covering the old one and top stitched down

I didn’t have enough fabric to do ‘mitred’ or ‘log cabin’ corners so the shorter sides were left til last with the ends pressed in and top stitched in place

All finished and now ready for some cosy winter nights …. with a good book or another felted ‘noddy house’ cottage to stitch!

I have used a similar technique to finish Quilts and Baby blankets

A few small pieces remain of my remnant stash …. but this will be tucked away for some small project … or maybe some Etsy finishing for my shop ……  Garnet Fleuri
