Turnout Blanket

Another blanket was finished up this weekend.

Like Henry’s blanket, I tried several new things with this one.

I’ve been wanting to make a turnout blanket for a while now. The challenge was how to add gussets – those triangle shaped pieces – and keep them neat and in scale-ish with the rest of the blanket. I tried this a long time ago and it wasn’t working at all. Lately the idea’s been nagging at me, so I approached it differently and the end result was much, much better.

Sometimes it just helps to leave ideas on the back-burner for a while.

Another thing I wanted to try was a two-toned blanket. This was a lot easier than I thought it would be, so now I’m eager to try combining solid colors with all my goofy prints. XD

It was very time consuming but I’m happy with how it came together in the end.

Henry’s Blanket

Last week I put together a blanket to fit my Henry/Fjord model. He also ended up getting a matching halter because, even though it’s been 2 years already, (yikes) I haven’t forgotten about the “halters for everyone!” project. I’m just… super slow.

Anyway.

I tried several new things with this blanket, mainly the thickness of the binding and lack of top stitching.

The straps are a new style for me too, along with the keepers in the front. Little details can make such a huge difference I think…

Extra shot, cause this mold with his big nose is so cute ❤
