If you’d have asked me if I would have sold a lot of these when I made the first one, I’d have called you crazy! I made the original magic carpet for a photographer to use as a photo prop, size 14×26″. A little over a year later, and I have gotten orders for 9 blankets, ranging from the miniature size, all the way up to 40×60″! With the five that got scooped up this holiday season, I’ll definitely be making some extras to have on hand.
Above, you can see all four of the minis getting started up – how much fun was it making these assembly-line style? I did end up having some fun with the colors and changing things up a bit with some different shades of blue.
It’s a rare treat to work with a metallic gold, and I relish every moment – especially the tassels!
Any my final magic carpet of the year! These are seriously a blast and you can work one up in a couple of days. Check out the tutorial and make one yourself!
