Blanket Crane Tutorial

Some of you have requested a tutorial on making a blanket crane, so I've tried my best to draw a diagram and come up with step by step directions. I want to point out, though, that mine is stationary, it doesn't swing.

I hope these directions make sense and are easy to follow. Please forgive me - sometimes my methods are a little unusual and trying to explain them is kind of hard. I wish I had Linda's (Behind My Red Door) eloquent way with words!

You should be able to click on the pictures and print out the directions for easier reference.


  1. That looks very understandable to me! And thank you for the compliment. I nevet hink of my words as eloquent - just from the heart!! I occasionally worry about my grammar, but I hope it sounds like a conversation between two friends! That is part of what make sblogging so much fun!

    Do you mind if I mention this tutorial in my next post mid week or so?

    hugs, Linda
