Picnic blanket sounds cute!

Re: What to do with wool?

I made a beautiful scarf, appliqués, you name it! I love working with felt. Check out the book "Green Sewing" for lots of upcycling ideas.

Think I want to make a blanket or picnic blanket. I don't know how to make a backing and sew it like a quilt though. I also don't have a serger so I'm stumped on that one. Lol
