Label blanket

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

I saw this fabulous blanket at the Showhouse that was made entirely out of clothing labels!  

Of course my mind starts spinning...did all the labels belong to the same couple? {I saw
suit labels and dress labels} Were they collected for years...decades? What was the procedure--buy 
a new garment and immediately remove the tag, or, wear it, and then remove the tag when
the garment had been outgrown or outdated? 

I have saved my special t-shirts and sweatshirts since high school. I had always planned to create
a quilt out them. Instead, maybe I will make my kids a quilt made out of all their sports
shirts, camp shirts and school shirts. 

Wouldn't that make a fun graduation gift!     

Have you ever made a blanket out of something really personal or collected? Share it with me!


Update***I got some emails from folks wanting more info on the label blanket. I contacted Monday’s House

 of Design and found out that the blanket was created by local artist, Shari Erickson. It is 5’x7’ and was hand

 stitched with her personal collection of  labels {dating back to the 1970’s}. Shari has a tremendous

 portfolio and many impressive clients. Take a look at her website. Oh, and it is for sale…



Beautiful blankets: In2Green

Thursday, June 09, 2011

I have been searching to add a pop of color to a room that just needs one more layer. Finding
great throws is not always the easiest accessory to source. But, it can make quite an impact when
you have a room that feels a little lack-luster.  I use them across the end of beds, folded on the
 back of the sofa, or draped over a wing chair.
One of the best companies out there for not only a beautiful variety of throws, but a wonderfully
 environmental responsible company, is In2Green. They are colorful, modern and made with
recycled yarn. And the above are only a few of the patterns available. I'm leaning towards the Ikat.
