That's pretty fabric!

Have you tried the thrift stores for velvet?  That is where I get most of mine. If you need consecutive yardage, it wouldn't work, but if you can cut it into pieces, you might find some nice velvet garments.  I got a beautiful silk dress recently with embroidered flowers.  Not sure what on earth I will do with it, but I couldn't resist it.

Didn't even think of that. If I remember I'll check the thrift store one of the next times I go to town. They have tons of clothes, so perhaps I can find a little velvet dress or maybe even a pillow to repurpose.

I had to get my Kensignton blankets out for the boys as we had a couple of nippy nights and they are freshly clipped.  One blanket was fine and the other--all the velcro had disintegrated!  It was a mess.  I have removed all the velcro and am in the process of redoing it.  Instead of overlapping the velcro, I am sewing D rings for the velcro to go through.  I think this will give me more flexibility for size. 

Anyone else had their Kensingtons do this?  What a pain!  Why one and not the other?  I did buy them in different  years.

Perhaps a bad batch of Velcro.
