This is a two-layered cotton patchwork without padding in between.

It measures 49 inches by 72.5 inches.


The theme is elephants! With apples and berries.


The diagonal designs are made with strips. Hence, no wastage.

By cutting diagonally, you get triangles and trapeziums. But they are actually made from rectangular strips.


I decided not to cut up too much for the elephant cloth as it already has a patchwork design.




The backing is done in beige, by my mum.


 Will this blanket be yours?

Happy Bidding!

For RM150, you get to subsidise the neutering of one street dog or one street cat and two vaccinations. In return, you get to take home a home-sewn cotton blanket which you can use for many, many years (it's very lasting) or give it away to a loved one with all your love and ours too!
