    Not out of a wool blanket but I made a tadah duffle out of soft shell a few years ago and I’ve seen heaps made from the wool blankets. I have used a twig and tale pattern for something else and the pattern was easy to follow from memory.

    Ohhh they look great. OP shops, market place, Facebook destash groups.. might be hard and they tend to be expensive.

    ohhhhh! i was worried about that. oh well. i’ll keep an eye out and if i manage to get something that fits the bill then i’ll give it a go.

    the other thing i was thinking to make it with is corduroy? that’s nice and soft and cozy.
