Historical version 4 of Kake's Big Purple Sofa Throw

Basically just a rectangle. I got 7m of a nice sturdy purple fabric from John Lewis, cut it in half and sewed the halves together along the long sides to make a 3.5m wide throw. I used a flat felled seam in the middle, and hemmed the sides by making a 1/8" hem, then folding it over and stitching it again on the 4/8" line. It looks very nice and the seam/hems are lovely and neat. Not bad for my first serious sewing project. I did leave the selvedges unhemmed, since they won't be visible anyway and even if they were they're kind of nice.

Photo coming at some point maybe.
