Free (recycled) fabric for my stash
This week we discovered that one of our electric blankets no longer worked. It seemed a shame to throw it away.
So I took off the electrical cable controllers and cut around the edge of the blanket itself.
I then spent quite a long time ripping along all the quilting lines which joined the top cotton fabric, the springy wadding, the electric wires, and then the more substantial wadding.
Then I pulled apart the three fabrics, took out and threw away the electric wire snaked between the layers of wadding - and now, hey presto, I have two rather large sheets of wadding, ready to upcycle them in the next project!
