Okay, when I was at JoAnns on NYD, I found some really great printed flannel - a brown and cream provinical print and the exact matching cream - all by the same manufacturer and line.
My question is - I am thinking about putting it together and then washing. I know that flannel shrinks alot but am wondering if I can make the pieces larger and have it all shrink together so that it is tighter, closer, thicker weave. I thought this would make a warmer blanket. (I am thinking along the lines of felting wool.)
I think I am going to make a sample block and finish it, and then wash and see what happens. My logical mind says that it should all shrink the same - direction, amount, etc. and accomplish the wanted outcome.
Ideas - thoughts - opinions?
