I used an old blanket that I found at the opp shop, it had started to fray a bit on one edge, so I trimmed it down and put binding around it all. The binding and applique fabric was some cotton off my shelf that had also originally come from the opp shop, it was a curtain from memory.
I stitched three ginko leaves on one side, and one on the other side.
I had a lot of fun making this, sitting and handstitching those leaves, and it was quite satisfying turning an old blanket into something pretty. I imagined it would be used as a throw or a picnic blanket. I'm quite keen to make some more of these, once a few other things have been ticked off my to-do list, we could definately do with a few of these around the house, perhaps I'll even make a few for the shop.
