Have found almost all my sewing gear, and am making plans for a small project–a couple of blankets need re-sizing.
According to the Internet, these are standard mattress sizes:
Twin (Single) 39×75 inches 36×79 inches
Full (Double) 54×75 inches 55×79 inches
Queen 60×80 inches 63×79 inches
King 76×80 inches 71×79 inches
America “standard” sizes for blankets:
Twin: 66 by 90 inches
Double: 80 by 90 inches
Queen: 90 by 90 to 100 inches
King: 108 by 90 to 100 inches
I thought it interesting that both the mattress sizes and blanket sizes were included. Didn’t realize there was such variation in length in the larger sizes, either.
Now I just have to locate all that thread…
I found the thread — kept looking at the top photo, and finally realized why. I didn’t have that on my sewing table before the move! In the frenzy of last minute packing, I gathered up all the odds & ends on the table, including my box of threads, and everything went into that top box. Gee – forgot to look and see if the Folkwear Armistice blouse pattern is there… One more thing to hunt down!
But sewing will follow!
