Scotties Abound!

Completed another sewing projects–a quilted flannel blanket.  Scotties abound in a sea of pink.  The backing is a simple pink gingham

I quilted two pieces of flannel together, serged the edges, and then crocheted a shell border.  I was able to crochet the edging in one evening.

The end product is a lightweight flannel blanket.  The edging makes it quite charming.

    i love this idea! what kind of crochet hook did you use? or did you make holes in the flannel for the hook?

      Hi–I usually use a D or E hook depending on the weight of the yarn. I made the holes in the flannel using a specially designed rotary blade just for this purpose. After sewing the flannel pieces together, using a ruler and the rotary with this blade, I basically scored working in about 1/2 inch from the edge. When crocheting, you have to play with the flannel because the holes are not easily visible.
