Fiddle Blanket


The next project we're going to do in the craft group I run is to make fiddle blankets to donate to dementia patients. I've been making a sample so that the group will know what they're aiming for. The idea is to have different textures and different things to fiddle with, which is apparently soothing for dementia patients. There are a lot of examples and hints on Pinterest. 

I took the opportunity to try out a tutorial by Shabby Fabrics, a video called How to Make a Self-Binding Placemat. I'm pleased with the result, though I was concentrating so much on the process that I put the backing inside out! It's a shame because the fabric is pretty, but I'm certainly not redoing it. 


  1. This is interesting info. It looks nice despite the fabric faux pas 💙💙💙

  2. That's really wonderful work your group is doing!

  3. Brilliant idea, I am sure the group will play with your idea and make some great ones
