Save money on blankets by repurposing them when they get old.
Blankets can be used as the filler, or batting, in quilts. Small pieces of
a wool blanket can be cut up and put into boots to keep your feet warm in winter
months. You can also use some blankets to make homemade diapers.
Here are some more ways to save money with blankets.
- Make your own quilts and
use them as blankets.
- Make your own blankets
from fleece fabric.
- Buy older blankets at
thrift stores and fix them up by repairing them, and cutting off any
with a razor blade.
- Buy older blankets and cover
them with thrift store sheets.
- Knit or crochet blankets with
thrift store yarns.
- Make a quilted mixed media
blanket using squares of knitted fabric with flannel squares.
