Did I tell you I want to make a Moroccan wedding blanket? Of course it won’t be as luxurious as an original hand loomed authentic real deal straight out the mountains of Morocco blanket. It won’t cost $750 and up either. And it won’t have the same marital blessings either. 😦
I found the fabric I want to use for my version but I can’t tell you where until I buy it because it took me a heckofalongtime to find it. Now all I have to do is find the trim. I need 15 yards of trim as my blanket will be roughly 45″l x 90″w and my rows will be about 6″ apart. I am NOT spending $10 a yard on trimmings…no no no. I found some places that sell them about $3 a yard but I haven’t found the perfect one yet. I ordered my metal sequins from India. They should be here in a month or so LOL. I am so cheap all I wanted to pay for was the slow boat method.
Anyway this project is on the back burner, I am just planning and getting the materials ready.
I want to do something besides painting and mudding and sanding! Once I start this it will take me a day to make the blanket but a month to sew on all the sequins. LOL
Any ideas where to find some suitable trim? What do you think of these blankets?
