Cozy Sweaters make Cozy Blankets

What better fabric to use to make a blanket than the fabric found in the pile of old cozy sweaters that you no longer wear?  That sweater that no longer fits, or the sweater that is no longer in style but you just can't part with is just the perfect pieces to make a blanket! 



Sew the cut out pieces from your old sweater collection and serge them together on a baby lock serger.  You can finished the edges by serging them too. 


Ribbons, lacing, zippers, buttons and buttonholes that were part of the original garment can add interesting details to the blanket.
