2. Quilting Patterned Blanket

Making and selling blankets with quilting techniques is the most common type in the business of needle and thread crafting. Even though it is everywhere, it does not mean that you cannot do the same business.

Often, the quilts sold with quilting techniques are thick bed covers; you can also indulge in selling a thinner type of the same. To add to the uniqueness, you can make special themes for each blanket you produce.

The initial capital that you have to accumulate is enough to cover the materials and quilting equipment.

Invite your friends or neighbours to help, in order to produce more. You must prefer to choose those who have mastered the basics of sewing, for the fledglings you can illustrate the concept so that they just follow according to the template that you have provided.
