Oh man, Im not sure I will ever love anyone enough to make them a blanket like this! It was a nightmarish experience, and also the feeling JUST returned to my "cutting hand" that has been numb for 2 days since its completion. This blanket is INTENSE.
It requires 4 pieces of fabric, one hour of prep work drawing 1/2" lines over and over again, roughly 6 hours of repetitive sewing, and then 3 hours of excruciating cutting. Then you have to bind it and wash it. Its quite the process and I feel truly VICTORIOUS now that its done!!!
I LOVE IT! Its soft and big and I hope Benett will keep it forever and ever, because if not I will never recover.
It photographs terribly, but you get the idea... its MUCH cuter in person.
The back is "faux chenille"
Im in love with this Chevron one and might just have to try it!
