Flea market (car boot sale) finds - blanket doormat

Hello dear blankets fans

last weekend we were able to snag two blankets on the flea market:


This blanket is really great. Perfect vintage condition:











This blanket was used as a car repair blanket. Lot of oil stains and top right a long tear. Well, the blanket was for free....
Let's see how to repair and clean it. Oil comes out rather bad. But the pattern is so nice..... We'll give it a try.






As we walked through Cologne last weekend, we found at a front door an old blanket converted into a doormat.
Left and right cut, rough sewn through. Done. Not a really good idea......









These pictures always make us sad.

So here again our request:

PLEASE
Before you throw away the blanket or cut it up, please contact us and make an offer The many people around the world, which are using our templates for knitting or crocheting enjoy your blanket, too!

Thank you!
Your team from Vintage Blankets Museum

And there was a really funny blanket in this bag. The pre owner recyled an old blanket to a kind of sleeping bag. This looks funny. We use it no as a transportation bag for our other blankets.
