One of the first times I was at my boyfriend’s house after we started dating, I noticed this blanket folded up on his couch while we were sitting on the cold leather sofa watching a movie.  I soon unfolded it and wrapped it around me, and that’s when I fell in love….with the blanket (and him too I suppose :)).  It was just so soft and warm and cozy and relaxing and unique AND soooo….cuddly?  I quickly asked him where it came from and much to my surprise he said, “my mother makes them for close friends and family, it’s her “thing””.  Within a year, I had my very own “cuddly”.  Needless to say, it hasn’t left my side since and it doesn’t get very much shelf time either; it’s almost always on the couch, the bed, a chair, or traveling with me wherever I may go & I wouldn’t dare let just anyone borrow it.  She did a fantastic job in choosing the correct fabric & colors for me:  a girl shopping with her dog on a light teal background flannel paired with a darker coordinating teal in a soft velour (pictured below).

It means a lot to her to find the perfect fabrics for the recipient of the blanket, as these blankets truly last years and I mean YEARS.  They really do get better with age; the more you wash and use them, the softer and better they become.  Now, how awesome is that?  Lucky for you, she no longer keeps these amazing blankets to her inner circle of friends & family, she has her own website, “SophistiCuddly”, where you can shop & purchase one of your very own, and trust me, you’ll soon want to get one for all the favorite people in your life.

P.S.-  After 5 long years, I have commissioned myself another cuddly, & here are the fabric combos…. I can’t wait until it’s finished!  It’s going to be so nice!
