Sorry, this item sold. Have RePatchIt make something just for you, or try these other items:
Baby clothes, children's clothing - anything can be recycled into patchwork! On the pictures you see some examples of blankets I've made from people's recycled clothes.
You do the first part of the creative work: You choose the clothes you want to recycle... Choose clothes with patterns, colors and motives that you like and which you think will look good together.
The number of clothing items varies greatly according to the type of clothes and especially the size: For example, I can make a large blanket from as few as 10 pieces of clothing if it's teenager XL size pants and long-sleeved shirts! But if you're sending me children's clothing size 3-4 years, I need minimum 15-20 items, and if we're talking baby clothes I need minimum 25-30 items..
Feel free to e-mail me to discuss whether the material you are planning to send is too little, sufficient or way too much (you have to cover the expense of sending the clothes to my by post, so you don't want to include much more than what is needed).
If the material you provide is not all used in your project, I get to keep the scraps and use them as I see fit! I love scraps..
If the material you provide turns out to be insufficient to complete the project, I will add some fleece and/or cotton fabric to finish it (it will usually be the same fleece and/or cotton I use for the backing and borders). No extra charge.
The final size of a large decorative blanket is approximately 45” x 60”. Please note the word “approximately”; each blanket is crafted by hand (and sewing machine), and sometimes I end up with something a little larger or smaller than anticipated...
By default, both backing fleece and border cotton for the blankets are solid color fabrics chosen by me. If you would like a specific color used, please let me know and I will try to accommodate the wish.
In general, you can count on receiving the blanket 2-3 weeks after I receive the clothes. If you need it sooner, please specify that it's urgent and I will do my best to be quick!
