An existing blanket can be upcycled and still be a meaningful gift. A plain blanket is a good foundation for colorful embroidery and appliques. A favorite quote can be sewn onto the blanket in fancy script. A talented artist can paint an original piece of art on the blanket using acrylic paints. An old patchwork quilt can be repaired by sewing new patches over torn or faded ones. Covering worn patches with fabric in contemporary colors makes the whole quilt look new, especially if the crafter is careful to maintain the original shape of the pattern. She might want to combine personalization techniques by painting small pictures on some of the patches. She could also embroider secret messages on them.
So what are these luxury blankets all about really? Your usual quilts are generally filled up with a cotton filling. The luxury blankets are usually filled up with feathers loosely wound up. This ensures a real good warm cover. Feathers in fact ensure that no matter how much warmth you get from the covers, these blankets are going to be pretty much light weight and easy to manage. Feathers typically have more air trapped between them. This trapped air helps in keeping the heat preserved. As a result, when you are using these, there is no need of worrying about the cold anymore. Most of the times, these blankets come with a silk covering. This adds on to the comfort factor.
