Craft supplies : Blanket Bundles

We don't just do craft workshops at The Magpie's Nest, we also sell craft and haberdashery supplies. One of my best selling items online are my blanket bundles, they come in three different sizes and really beautiful colours, these are made from vintage wool blankets and work brilliantly for applique.
They have inspired many of my projects for our popular Slow Stitching Club that is held twice a month in the shop.

This is free motion embroidery on blanket
 with needlefelted sheep and clouds.

The blanket fabric works really well with hand embroidery as well, because it is quite a thick fabric you get a nice raised 3d effect. The blankets vary in thickness and weave and come in beautiful colours. Our blanket bundles are made of vintage wool blankets, although I do check the fabric for stains and holes and cut the squares by hand to avoid these, please bear in mind these blankets are very vintage and may have age related wear or marks. 
Our bundles come in three sizes:
 tiny/3" squares/6 pieces = £1.50
mini/6" squares/6 pieces = £3.50
midi/12" squares/5 pieces = £10
mail order is available.
Please get in touch to order

A satisfying stack of hand cut squares
 waiting to be made up into bundles.

Our tiny bundles are so cute.

Here are the three sizes of our blanket bundles.

I think the mini is my favourite bundle
six beautiful 6" squares, folded and stacked and ready for action!

Gorgeous colours, great for crafting, true recycling too!
