This weekend I was experimenting with different fabrics to make baby blankets. I had one success and one failure, but it was overall a good experience.
This is how I used to make baby blankets – 2 layers of flannel with a decorative stitch edge:
While I still like this blanket and it’s soooo practical, look what happens when I change out one layer of flannel to chenille:
It has such a luxurious feel, and it’s so much thicker. And this pink toile & pink chenille combo is fun, fun, fun! Okay, I must admit – I didn’t come up with this idea myself – I got it from my friend Cindy’s creations. She has such a talent for pairing fabrics.
