Yes, more felt patchwork! I hit upon the idea of making a small blanket with the bulk of my remaining felt pieces after I completed last month's tutorial (see that one here) and thought that the colours I had left lent themselves well to it.
The finished blanket measures approximately 115cm square so is nice for a single bed, sofa throw or a picnic blanket. I used the following:
25 squares of coloured felt measuring 23cm each
Needle and thread
Contrasting yarn and yarn needle.
First of all, you need to cut each of your squares in half diagonally to form triangles.
Then place these triangles out on a flat surface and play with the layout until you're happy.
Start stitching. I stitched 5 squares together at a time and then made each strip. When you've stitched each piece together pull it gently to flatten out.
When joining two strips together ensure that you pin on the seams so they match up properly.
Once you've stitched all of the pieces together, select a nice contrasting yarn and blanket stitch around the edge for a neat finish.
And it's done! You could easily make a much larger blanket or make it smaller to use as cushion covers (or table mats again!).
