Polypropylene Fabric, Pearlescent Thread, Batting, Grommets

A 10-meter shipping blanket hand-quilted on a consumer grade sewing machine. Instead of the traditional zig-zag pattern, this is made with a single unending “meander stitch” on a full bolt of polypropylene fabric. Polypropylene is a non-woven thermoplastic polymer, a mix between plastic and paper, that these kind of moving blankets are normally made from, known under the proprietary name “Oly-Fun” in the consumer crafting market.
