Faux Chenille Blanket

 Well, I finally tried it!  I pinned this blanket long ago and have really wanted to try it out.  The tutorial is from Dana at Made and I've been wanting to make one for forever.  She has great, simple instructions.  It turned out gorgeous!  My aunt just had an adorable baby girl.  My aunt isn't "girlie" so I wanted a simple, classic blanket that was obviously "girl" but not scream'in pink.  I found this adorable polka dot fabric for the top.  It has purple, pink, grey, and yellow polka dots.  For the fabric layers on the back I did a grey, purple, and pink solid fabric.  It's definitely an "heirloom" style blanket I will make again.  Here's the link to the Tutorial!

  1. I have made this blanket several times now and I just adore it. It is easy to make and always comes out beautifully. Love the polka dot fabric you used :)
