Untitled

At last the boy's blankie is on his bed!
He is very happy and it is dragged downstairs in the morning for snuggling on the couch. Made entirely with thrifted fabrics, sheeting  on the front and a chenille bedspread for the back. I haven't used any batting. The chenille makes it surprisely warm and it makes for a lovely soft, snuggly blankie.

It looks fantastic! I love the mix of fabrics, and even though it uses vintage fabrics, it looks quite modern - love it!

That looks great, no wonder he is so chuffed and it is good to see a vintage sheet boys version around.Is the vintage sheet side stitched through to the chenille or just around the border? melx

Sensational! Looks fantastic. Very inspiring. Wish I could find as many 'boy' vintage sheets as I do 'girl' so I can make something for my boys. Nice. Fi xx

I must admit to seeing the first two pics and not loving on the fabrics, but the overall effect is GORGEOUS! Great job! That bed head reminds me of one I had when i was little, I had forgotten about it. Must ask Mum :)
