homely details : curl up with Anthropologie's cosy blankets

homely details : curl up with Anthropologie's cosy blankets | Emma Lamb

Honestly, it was love at first sight when I saw these gorgeous up-cycled blankets over on Anthropologie this morning! As you can see they're made using pre-loved knitwear, deconstructed and then re-patched into these quirky geometric designs.

I love that some of the button bands, necklines and pockets have been saved. The pockets especially, as they would come in quite handy for me as a wee place to keep my crochet hook and scissors when I'm working on an evening, no more fear of losing said slippery objects down the back of said sofa, yay!

Hope you're all having a lovely day!
Emma, x

  1. Great idea indeed to re-use old sweaters and cardigans! I have once seen such a blanket composed of old jeans. Including pochets for the tv remote control :-)
    have a good day!

  2. What a great idea! Thanks for the link. Will just have to add it to the long, long list of things I want to make!

  3. I like this idea,thanks for sharing..

  4. Strike a light! These are divine. Was pondering the upcycled clothing into blanket/quilt malarkey. Most excellent (and inspired) food for thought.
