Its for the corners..this confused the heck out of me too..until I did it...then it made sense!
so you actually cut the square and discard it? sorry - i still can't picture it! i've been checking your pics and can't figure the corners out
sorry to be a pain but i just thought i'd like to try some for the kiddies and young people for next christmas - i think they'd be really cool!
hang on - i think i may have it!
so you make a cut on the short edge a little way in from the corner, then you make another cut round the corner on the long edge but not so as to cut out the square but just enough to make the cuts almost meet?
This is what it looks like before you start tieing them together
How do you keep the edges from buckling when you are tying them?
oh excellent, i get it now - so you *do* discard the corners! thank you for posting that PA!
any chance of a step by step video guide!
what do you mean buckling tink? video? have you lost your mind?
Never mind. Dorothy answered my question for me.
yeah, a long long time ago!
Those are lovely. What sort of size are they? I will have to look out for some nice fleece material over here or that will be another caseload of stuff from Walmart crossing the Atlantic. Those would make great Christmas presents.
that's what i'm thinking - christmas present for my nieces and nephews, oh and my 2 of course!
Most finished throws are about 50" x 60" or so. If you buy panels (i.e., the Marines panels for PA's DS), they can vary a bit and would be based on the size of the panel. You can buy solid or print fleece off the bolt and determine the size you want or add borders to the panels--but it isn't "no-sew" if you sew on borders!
the one I just made Amy is about 40 inches by 72 inches. I like my couch blankets to be extra long :dunno: I got 3 yards of each
