3691  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone ever sewn with emergency blanket material? on: October 27, 2009 10:22:24 AM
Thanks, Knottie!

I've tried fleece, other super cozy blankets even an electric blanket!  What I bought is exactly what that first photo shows which seems quite a bit different than the other product (probably the $16 difference), but I think I'll sandwich this stuff between some fleece and something lighter and see what happens.  I like the idea of a plant light, too.  Hmmmmmmm.

YKYACW you post a question on the Sewing In General Board (with photos and everything) https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=325744.msg3761140#msg3761140 before you even think to send an email to the manufacturer of the product you have questions about.
3693  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Anyone ever sewn with emergency blanket material? on: October 26, 2009 04:26:24 PM
I want to try to sew a blanket for my cat using something like this.



He's 20 year old and will only avoid sitting on my lap ANY time I sit down if it's 100+ degrees outside (therefore 85-90 degrees inside) or if I can park him in a sunbeam.  However, it's October here in the Pacific Northwest and no where near 85 degrees in the house and the sunbeams are few and far between until spring.


(even while sewing he wants on that lap)

The emergency blanket stuff supposedly reflects 80-90% of your body heat back at you. According to the packaging, it's windproof, waterproof and will not crack, mildew or shrink.  I imagine that to mean I can wash and dry it and that sewing it to some fabric won't wreck it, but would love to hear if anyone has experience sewing with it.  Plus it's $1.99 for 84" x 54".  

Last thing: will it work if sandwiched between layers of fabric?  It's not especially cozy and it's crinkly sounding.   I'd like to make it as appealing as possible to the old guy and perhaps muffle the sound a bit.  He's deaf, but I'm not.

That's really cute! Very clever problem solving.  I'd've been lazy and said "torn up just looks more haunted."

Awesome!  Have a great trip!  I've been mentally trying to figure out how to make my ideal bikini top for awhile now... This is inspiring enough that maybe I'll actually get to it this year.

I wish MY cats had figured that out!  Any time I make a lap, they think it's fair game.

These are really nicely done!  I love fonts you chose and the way you executed them!  I have some monogram bookmarks in my future for xmas presents and you've reinvigorated my interest in getting started.
