Crochet & Linen Throw Blanket Tutorial

Crochet & Linen Throw Blanket Tutorial

Whenever I am out thrifting I will always look over the linens.  Sometimes it is hard to decide how to use them in your home, though.

My good friend, Jamie Lundstrom, from So Much Better with Age  just wrote an amazing book all about the stunning French Vintage style of DIY decorating.  With over 70 gorgeous projects there was bound to be one on the use of vintage linens.

Ever wonder what to do with that vintage crocheted table cloth or coverlet? How about turn it into a beautiful linen backed throw blanket? Learn how in this tutorial.

 

I kept noticing a beautiful crochet and linen throw in the pictures and finally on page 152 there was a tutorial on the blanket!  Yippee!

Twin size dust ruffles are my favorite if they have a pretty edge and I have a favorite that I would love to get more use out of.  The truth is, though, that the crocheted edge is not really that comfortable on the skin.  But, linen is wonderful, so I found my solution!

    Everything you do is lovely. And it is so precious to “save” and use old linens and lace, more than just collecting and not using them. I love how you re-invent objects into useful items for your home.
