It looks warm and cozy.  Is that embroidery on the edges?

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

Yes, it is, they are warm and cozy. No, not embroidery, but a homemade bias tape edge. Usually the same fabric as one of the fabrics used to make the throw, but this time I used a coordinating fabric. It was a gorgeous white flannel w/ gold swirls/details and vivid bright jewel tone butterflies... It is sometimes hard to find a non-juvenile flannel print.

Love it!  It's awesome!

I made a chenille throw for my nephew awhile ago.  It took me so long, I ended up giving it to my DS who was born 3 years later.   Cheesy  Did you use flannel for the chenille or cotton?

Flannel... its nice cuz you can use a pattern buried in the layers Smiley but this one was just plain white, as I didn't want to compete with the edging.

Is this the chenille you make by layering fabrics, stitching across and then cut through all but the back layer? If it is, all the ones I've seen have been multi colored and this is so much more classy.
