Blanket Makeovers

Bed Linens

Old blankets with holes can be stuffed into an existing duvet cover or used as batting for a homemade quilt. Read on for more ways to use expired blankets.


Portions of a blanket that are still good can be used to make pillow covers.

Smaller Blanket

If the holes or worn areas are on the border of the blanket, the blanket can just be cut down to a smaller size. Finish with a turned under hem, serge stitch or blanket binding to make a lap or doll’s blanket.

Stuffed Animal

Use portions of the blanket that are in good condition to make stuffed animals.

About Kat

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.
