Small Pink "Blanket?"

I made a quick dash into the thrift store last week and found lots of PINK and LOTS of vintage linens. They are in the wash now but I'll show you some later. I always hit the baby section in search of vintage baby blankets and there, I snapped this little thing up!

I couldn't resist that fat little cat with the ribbon around his neck. (Even if I don't like real cats!)

Notice the tag: "SMALL BLANKET." I didn't pay much attention to it. After all, most baby blankets ARE small but I use them as lap-throws so they work for me.

When I got it home and unrolled it ,it was no bigger than 20" x 24"! It would barely cover one leg! I think it is 100% wool and had been washed. Does anyone know if I can soak it and stretch it out again??? I've done that with cotton items but never with wool. Any ideas?

This little kitty is playing with a ball of green yarn. He's so cute and puffy!

Even at it's present size, it would still make a very sweet wall hanging for the cottage.



Very sweet kitty baby blanket..

Hi Rosie... I've been a lurker for awhile...that is such a sweet find. I hate to tell you though, once wool is shrunk it's all over. =( It would make a beautiful hanging - great idea! ~Shannon
