What is a Throw Blanket?
A throw blanket is a versatile addition to any home. Not only can it be used as a comfort item during cold weather, but it can also serve as a decorative piece in any room. Throw blankets come in many different styles and colors, so there’s bound to be one that will fit your needs. Here are some tips on how to position a throw blanket:
-Place the blanket on the floor next to the couch or chair where you will be using it. This way, you’ll have easy access to it if you need it and you won’t have to search for it when you’re ready to use it.
-If the blanket is large enough, place two of them next to each other so that they overlap somewhat. This creates a larger surface area that can provide more warmth.
-If the blanket is small, place it single-file on the floor next to the couch or chair. This way, everyone who wants access to it will have less space around them and less chance of getting too warm.
How to Make a Throw Blanket
Making a throw blanket is super easy and can be done in just a few minutes. All you need is some fabric, a needle and thread, and a scissors.
First, measure the desired size of the blanket. This will be based on how big you want it to be and how many people you plan on using it with. Cut out the fabric using the dimensions you determined earlier. You can use any kind of fabric for this project- cotton, wool, or even fleece are all good choices.
Next, sew the seams of your fabric together using a needle and thread. Make sure that both sides of the blanket are completely attached before continuing onward.
Now it’s time to make the slightly raised edging around the blanket’s perimeter. Start by cutting out a strip about 1 inch wide by about 18 inches long. Then, fold the strip in half so that its short edge is now along one side of your blanket and its long edge is now along the other side. Pin the folded edge down so that it stays in place as you start sewing it up along one side of your blanket (make sure not to sew too close to either end- just barely past where they meet). Sew slowly and carefully along this edge until you reach the other side of your blanket (again- make sure not to sew too close to either end). Do this same thing with another strip until you have four strips total surrounding your entire blanket perimeter (it doesn’t have to be perfect
Tips for using a Throw Blanket
When using a throw blanket, it is important to position it accordingly. When laid out flat, the blanket should be positioned so that its short side is facing your body. This will help keep you warm and reduce the amount of fabric that you need to coverage yourself. Additionally, make sure the blanket is placed sufficiently low on your body so that it does not block any circulation.
