This afternoon I trimmed the selvages and then I did a simple zig zag stitch on the edges pulling the fabric taunt so it would then have a raggle look to it. I'm not sure if "raggle' is a word or not, but for the sake of this post I will say it is a word.
So here is what the edges look like. I had to put an ivory placemat under the edges so you can see what the zig zag stitching did to the edges.
And here is my son holding the four blanket throws. Each blanket is 6 feet in length and 5 feet in width. A perfect size to wrap up in while watching t.v. or reading a book. Beats one of those "Snuggies" anyday. Best of all the price to make each blanket was just $4.00 plus a spool of thread.
