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.
