Remember the bedspreads I mentioned that I was sewing a couple weeks ago? Well I am proud to say I have completed this project. Yay!
I realized while preparing these photos that I didn't take that many photos of the early stages of the project like I thought I had. Oh' well. Hopefully the few I have show clearly how I made the bedspreads.
I used quilt batting to go between the two layers of material.
I used pins to hold the material together.
A lot of pins!
I then sewed around the quilt with a straight stitch.
I added some quilt binding to go around the edges of the bedspreads.
And of course I had to pin the material on...
...three blankets with quilt binding on and ready to sew.
Looking back, I wouldn't have used a straight stitch here, but a zigzag as I ended up following the straight stitch with a zigzag anyways.
The last thing that needed to be finished before the project was complete was the addition of little knots around the bedspreads so that the three layers of material would stay together.
I added pins as markers, making a pattern, so that I could add the knots with ease later.
I used a rather large and curved needle to add the knots.
I than made a simple knot...
After the knot was made I cut the yarn to make all ends even.
At about 11:30pm last night I took this picture...
...and this morning I put these adorable little bedspreads upon these three little toddler beds. At long last, the bedspreads are finally finished! Ces't fini!
