Kid’s blanket fabric unknown, Help?

Hi, I’m the mother of a 4yo kid with autism and severe sensory issues. When he was a baby, an aunt from another coutry sent him a blanket, that he adored since the first second.

Except a tiny round one that says “Made in Belgium.” They are ivory damask, wtih very narrow hems.

Decorative Relief Carving in Wooden Spools

So often we have empty wood thread spools and not the slightest idea of what to do with them. Some [like me] throw them in a storage container and watch them accumulate over the years; some sell them on online auctions or others at their stores often with a birthday candle inserted as a way to decorate them. But here is one clever person whose artist’s eye recognized the potential for ornamentals. And what de…

Fabric Label Basics – The Billboard of a Designer

www.wovenlabelsource.com As a quilter, knitter, recreational sewing buff, or a clothing designer, probably the last thing on your mind is the cloth label that serves as an advertising “billboard” of your work.
