Here are two pieces of the soft cotton contributed by Ms Ooi. The colours complement each other, so I decided to match them together.


It's a classic patchwork done with squares. I did not want to cut up too much of the teddies.


Sewing up squares can also be tricky with soft cotton, so after every row is done, I have to measure the two edges.


The cotton is so soft; this would definitely make a wonderful blanket for any weather.

That's the magic of cotton - it keeps you cool on hot days and warm on cold days.


After I'm done sewing the top, the backing is done by my mum, in the beige cotton contributed by Agnes Cheong.


Here's the finished blanket, measuring 51 1/2 inches by 83 inches.

For a donation of RM150, you will be helping in the neutering of a street dog or a street cat plus two vaccinations. Neutering and vaccination save lives.

Hi Incredible Hug, If you'd like to bid for this blanket, could you please place a bid higher than the prevailing highest bid, ie. RM200? Thanks very much!

Hi bidders, Something went wonky with our time for the last few hours, but no fear, the three bids are still published in chronological order so it's still first-come-first-served. The time is correct now. Sorry about that - it must have been a wordpress glitch which happened in those few hours.

Incredible Hug said...

Ah, there weren't any bids when I placed my bid earlier. Perhaps my virtual world was lagging. So sorry! RM288 please. Thanks. :)
