Classy Blanket for a Classy Lady

I have a friend expecting a baby and I knew the perfect gift would be a Faux Chenille Blanket.  This lady isn't a cutesy baby type but a sophisticated, classy lady, not someone who can be defined by the baby they carry so I set out to make a blanket tailored for her.  The sex of the baby is unknown so gender neutral was necessary.

Here's the front, black and sleek.

The yummy, soft chenille on the inside

And a couple extra shots.  
It's hard to tell from the photos but this blanket is quite striking and the chenille side ends up being almost surprising.  I love the simpleness of the colours.

Hopefully she loves it as much as I do.
I'd forgotten how much I love making these blankets, I'm already looking forward to the next one.

If you haven't seen the blankets I've made in the past you can check them out here.

I love the look of these faux chenille blankets. I haven't attempted one yet, but after seeing how cute yours have all turned out, I really want to give it a go. And I love that you made this one for your friend that isn't your typical "baby colors" blanket.

Saw you at Polly Want a Crafter!
