Love the colours and pattern choice here, definitely a perfect Spring throw.
Thanks for sharing :)

Thank you so much for that catch! It should, indeed, be 7 yards of ribbon. – Elisabeth

I Read somewhere that the worst thing you can say to a blogger or on the internet is “how do I make that”, or something to that affect. So what is the etiquette? If someone posts a tutorial is it OK to copy it? Is it OK to pin it with the plan to copy it? I understand that you can’t copy it and claim it as your own, but can say you made it? If you like the look of something but there is no tutorial is it wrong to try and figure out how its made? I don’t have a blog but I love to pin and don’t want to upset anyone but I do have a board called “what I’d like to make”?

Thank you for you help with this!

I’ve started making baby blankets, mostly to get familiar with my sewing machine, but soon I may feel ready to tackle this.

I love the fact that it will give such a pop of color to a room!

And her use of ribbon instead of binding tape (which totally intimidates me) is genius! Now…I must hit the fabric store…thanks for sharing, Gabrielle!

And the directions are very clear, thanks! Love the pops of Yellow. The best though is the picture of your little boy at the end. Thanks for sharing, pinning next!

If you didn’t pre-wash your table mat that is probably why it wrinkled up.

I made something somewhat similiar years ago – a tablemat that covered the top of our dining room table (vs a tablecloth that hangs over the edges), via Martha Stewart. All was great until I washed it and it became lopsided/uneven looking and would never iron flat again. I think the 5 seams in this throw should help keep everything flat – and together!

One question, tho – should I pre-wash the fabrics before sewing?

thanks!

And I like having sewn but I don’t like sewing much. I might be willing to attempt something like this, though, as I never seem to find lightweight throws that I love.
