It's a good thing I actually flat-felled the wool I bought for hubby last week! Okay, a true flat-fell seam is a bit of a pain to sew - especially on 60 inch wide wool - but it does look great ... hubby even said so. Here he is holding it up folded in half ... I probably should have let him have at least one cup of coffee before snapping the pic. Bad me.

So hubby has a pretty two-wool blanket of nice warm FabricMart Shetland wool, and because I bought it on sale the whole 72"x60" blanket cost only $19 plus a little of my time ... so very superior to the plain piece of probably-poorly-serged 72x56 inch piece of wool he was about to spend $25-30 for before shipping ... and I still have a little over two yards of each color to make him a matching wool coat. Too bad I can't just wiggle my nose and have the coat sew itself ...
