No Sew Throw


In cleaning and straightening
out my sewing room, I came
across this large piece of
terry/knit fabric. ( No
measurements, sorry)

I wasn't really sure what I
was going to do with it but I
didn't want to take it to the
fabric resale store either. So...
after giving it some thought,
I turned it into a throw.

I folded it in half first
then...





I began cutting long sections
on three sides. I left the fold
alone. Then...




I tied the sections, making
knots all away around the
throw.




Here is the finished product!
It is folded in 1/2  twice. I will
be cozy when I need it!

All total, I think this took
about 2 hours to do. The
cutting takes the most time.
I worked on it one day, had
to leave it for a bit and finished
it another day. Use a flat surface
to work on, I tried my lap not good.


This would be fun for an adult/
child activity or small group
making their own throws.

    1. I kinda happened onto it while
      going through a bag of fabric.

      It will be just what I need when I
      get chilly.

  10. We have a few of those around our house, too. One year my daughter made them for the whole family. And then her friend made one for her in her college colors. I love it when people give heart felt, hand made gifts.

    1. Yes, it is nice to get handmade gifts.
      Especially when they have a special
      meaning.
