A blanket having an artificial filler,has a number of advantages over wadding and down products. Synthetic blanket is definitely lighter than cotton. It is easier to wash, unlike a duvet, and dries quickly.
For sewing you will need a sintepon (measurelength and width of the blanket) and fabric (two areas of the blanket with allowances for seams). Also, you can not do without a tailor's ruler and a square. Prepare for work a sewing machine, needles with threads and scissors. Let's start:
- Determine the length and width of the blanket. Take the sintepon and cut out the rectangle you need. By the way, you can sew a multi-layer blanket. In this case, the product will go several times more synthon. It may happen that the width of the sintepon will be less than the width of the future blanket. Therefore, you need to cut another strip of the necessary size and sew it to the main piece with the help of a frequent stitch "forward needle". So do all the layers.
- It is necessary to combine all the pieces of sinteponfriend, aligning the edges in such a way that none of them acted. Next, sweep together the pieces along the diagonals (seam "forward the needle"). It is necessary to sweep the blanket over the edge.
- From the fabric should be 2 rectangles,equal in area blanket. Consider allowances for seams. Sew together the prepared pieces of fabric and stitch them (fold them face-down inside). Leave one short side unsplit. Remove the resulting cover and iron it.
- Insert the synthon gasket into the cover. Align each side of the gasket with the side seams of your cover and pin the gasket with pins. Inside, bend the sections of the unshielded side. They need to be stitched, while capturing the gasket.
- It is necessary to stretch the blanket, grabbinggasket, along all lateral seams. You need to map the line in 5-10 centimeters from each edge and stitch the product again. Sketch mentally several horizontal or vertical lines and on them quilt a blanket.
