Crochet-Trim Blankets

I am finding ways to incorporate two of my favorite mediums into projects: crochet + fabric {especially vintage linens}. Last week I sewed a couple of lap-sized blankets and added coordinating crochet trim. Mmmm, in LOVE with the results!

The fabric was cut to about 30" X 35", sewn, turned out, and topstitched around the perimeter. Then the work of adding the yarn began. So many fun trim options are available; I chose the simple, but adorable scallop. 

Materials: Cotton fabric, coordinating flannel and cotton yarn.

One side is cozy flannel, and the other side is a vibrant cotton floral. This would be perfect as a baby blanket or a lap quilt for a Sweet Special. 

The cotton yarn trim means washing is a cinch.

And because I couldn't make JUST one, I used a favorite funky vintage sheet to make a second blanket.

Such a fun and satisfying project. Just in time for the cooler weather!

What are some combinations you love to work with??
