I've been wanting to try the Faux Chenille Blanket from Made for awhile, and finally did. I liked it so much, I made two of them. And now I think I'm taking a break. At least until the next baby shower.
This is a great project. As a reward for sewing line after line after line after line....
You get to cut it to pieces and shred it. Great fun.
I love how the back gets all ruffly and soft.
If you haven't tried this already, I have a tip. Dana mentions in her tutorial that 100 percent cotton frays better. I wanted to see how a cotton/poly blend would work, and I found out-not nearly as well. I still like how it looks, but it definitely doesn't fray as much.
