Sadly, nothing so exciting. All the title means is that I made a throw blanket out of a skirt and a sarong.
I got both of these pieces at Goodwill. I wanted to make this blanket for a birthday gift. My main concern was finding suitable colors for the recipient and colors that would work together. I considered that the two fabrics needed to be of similar weight, but then I thought that maybe in this case, it didn't matter.
The blanket is the perfect size to keep on your lap without having too much excess fabric. The weight of the velvet keeps it in place and the lightweight sarong feels smooth and cool. The recipient has reported using it on more than one occasion.
Not bad for $5, some thread, and an hour's work.
