DIY Chevron Chenille Baby Blanket

Aesthetic Nest

Put a new spool of thread on your machine and sharpen your scissors. Here's a completely fresh take on a hand-cut chenille method to make baby blankets. The top layer is a chevron printed fabric, but you'd swear at first glance that it's pieced. And the back? Fluffy fleece layers that are perfect for keeping your little one warm this winter.

Anneliese over at Aesthetic Nest whipped up this one-of-a-kind blanket for her sister-in-law's new baby by stitching the chevron print to two layers of flannel and then trimming the flannel layers along the bias, which happened to line up perfectly with the zig zags on the print. The chenille effect is awesome, and she wrote up a really nice tutorial to help you through all the steps. Be sure to sneak a peek at the polka dot garland swaddling blanket she made to go with it, too!
