I absolutely love cut chenille blankets!
|cut chenille baby blanket - whale fabric|
They are so much fun, so whenever I forget just how long they take to make (a loooooong time), I start another one haha. After making a couple of these, I gave in and purchased an Olfa Chenille Cutter, and I must say... It is awesome. If only I'd have gotten one sooner :)
For this blanket, I chose to do a decorative stitch in the shape of circles to attach the binding.
I have stacks of fabric set aside to make a couple more of these, maybe over my winter break I'll do another one!
