Holiday Trees Project

These trees are so adorable! They are super easy to make, too. You just need wool, wire, and some sort of star (or bead) for the top of your tree.



The tutorial by The Long Thread suggests using felted sweaters... but you could mix in some of our blanket header or other scraps, too.

Creative Customers: Eric's Classic Whiskey Bar


Get a load of this incredible and unique project using Pendleton blanket weight jacquard fabric! Creative customer Eric sent this picture in with the following description:

I am enclosing a picture of our Classic Pendleton Whiskey Bar. The top and base are the doors off a cargo ship that are then used as the deck when the ship is loaded. The top has 16 silver Walking Liberty Half Dollars, a vintage Whiskey locker brass plate, and a solid brass 1978 Pendleton Round-Up belt buckle. The base has a solid brass boot rail and 16 Buffalo nickles over the steel bolts on the side plate. 
Both whiskey barrels have a double decker lazy Susan turntable. Pendleton Woolen Mills blanket material was the ONLY choice to display our cargo.
