There are sooooo many reasons why I love the $19.99 Ofelia Blanket. I will list a few and then I will give one away to one of YOU! This is my all-time favorite item from IKEA. I was first introduced to this by my mom years ago and now have two in my home!
1. Texture. This blanket is made out of the cutest, softest material with the coolest-looking texture. You could never find this material in any fabric store, and if you found something similar, it would cost you a fortune for the amount you get here.
2. Price. It’s only $19.99, which goes along with reason #1.
3. It washes up nicely. We used this blanket a lot for newborn baby pictures, because of it’s awesome texture. So…you can imagine all of the ‘stuff’ that gets on these blankets during the photo shoot! When you wash it, everything comes out! It is as good as new and in fact the more you wash it, the softer the blanket becomes
4. Adds instant shabby-chic to your room. Okay so, when this blanket is sitting on your ottoman or couch, it instantly becomes part of your home decor! It doesn’t have to be folded, even if it’s wound up in a ball right after someone has been snuggling with it, it still looks picture-perfect!
5. Not too hot. The material of this blanket it sheer so you don’t over-heat when you wake up from a nap! I love napping with this blanket because it’s so light-weight but keeps you warm without making you sweat.
6. The perfect gift. If you do not own one of these, next time you go to IKEA, pick up one for yourself and pick up an extra one to have on hand for a gift. This is a great gift because it’s $19.99 and everyone can add it to their home!’
7. Dye-able. You can dye this fabric any color you want. It is made out of 80% polyester though, so keep in mind that it may not get as dark as you’d like
8. Bang for your buck. Like I mentioned before, the blanket sells for $19.99 and you would never be able to find awesome fabric like this at the material store. It is a good sized blanket
Okay, there you have it. Are you sold on this blanket? Here is the thing: Some IKEA stores do not sell this blanket, and you cannot purchase this blanket on their website, just an FYI.
**Did I mention I made some fun items from this lovely blanket? That’s right: one blanket, three items! See what you can make from it HERE
If I won this blanket I would use it in my living room, which gets very DeWitt, to snuggle with my daughters and husband.

If I won this would go in our TV room to use for snuggling under while watching TV! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

If I won this blanket I would cuddle up with a chick flick, junk food and enjoy a kid free-for the mom evening
I would most definitely curl up and try to take a nap with it, then get interrupted by a hungry baby or a toddler cutting her nap short 🙂
I would probably put it somewhere in my living room, draped over my couch or something!
Well, since it is a bit feminine and I have a house FULL of boys (4 to be exact!) I would put it in my bedroom and maybe it will bring me some baby girl good luck?!! 😉
Loving this blanket. If I won it, it would adorn my couch.
Cute! I need some cuteness in my house~ hope i winnnn~
I think this would be perfect to snuggle with my new baby girl. And it’d look great in my living room too! 🙂

I would love it for my last 8 weeks of pregnancy 🙂
I would love to display/use this blanket in my livingroom which lacks personality and is in need of a warm snuggly blanket!
I can’t believe I don’t have this blanket already!!! I’m a huge blanket person. It sounds wonderful and it will be on my list to get if I don’t win it. I would snuggle up in it every night as I watch my shows. Who doesn’t love a good blanket watching tv?
This looks like the perfect blanket to coy up on the couch and read a good book with! Thank you for this giveaway opportunity!
Such a cute blanket! Hope I win!!!
So so cute! I’d put this in my mew baby girls nursery this April 🙂
If I won the blanket I would immediately cuddle up in it. Its home would be my living room. I actually have wanted to get this blanket for awhile. I am glad to hear it is so wonderful.
I’d leave it as a blanket until I could get another one to play around with! Thanks for the chance to win! Good luck on Studio 5 today!
I would attempt to recreate the pillow you made if I were to win this fabulous blanket! You never cease to amaze me!
Love this blanket! Hopefully I win so I can take cute newborn pictures in April when I have my girl!! 🙂
I want this blanket sooo bad!
I would love to have this blanket to keep me warm on these freezing winter nights! And it is adorable, bonus!!:)
I’m not sure yet what I would use it for, but can’t wait to explore the possibilities! Pillows are a definite possibility!
I just watched you on Studio 5. I loved your projects! I live in Idaho but get the utah stations and am so happy I saw your segment! I am having a baby in a few weeks and would love it for a backdrop as well as a blanket. Thanks!
I already own one that I use for newborn pictures! I want one I can cut up to make one of those heart wreaths!!
I saw you on Good things Utah today! Loved your ideas and can’t wait to try them. I especially loved the heart idea!
I would love to do the lamp shades for my girls room. And I love the heart shaped wreath. Probably do some decorative pillows for my room or if it’s too soft I may just use it for me!
I’m kind of obsessed with fabric so if I didn’t use it as a blanket it would get used as something creative.
Thanks for the great ideas excited to create something with this blanket
I would try making the pillow and lamp!! Thanks for sharing,
If I won I would use it to snuggle with my baby girls! It would look perfect in their purple and white room.
I would for sure make a heart for my door.. I have zero valentine decorations. With the rest I would make some other things for valentines…
If I won this blanket I would have my sister in law use if for her photo shoots. It looks so easy to dye different colors and that would be great to see new born babies pictures on this cute colored blanket.
If I win I am not gonna lie, I am going to copy your projects as they are so cute and my daughter loves them and told me we have to make them. Thanks!
I would cover my lamp shades. I so need this!
I would make lamp shade covers!
who knows. I would probably make a skirt or pillows or maybe a valance for my baby’s room.
My cute husband watched you today on TV and looked you up and how I could enter! I’m always trying to make our tiny, newlywed apartment really home-y, but being newlywed students we don’t have much funding for decorating! We’re budgeting to buy a new couch, and this blanket would be SO cute to make some cute throws for the couch. It’d give our home such a fun, comfy feel!
I have seen that blanket at Ikea and wondered….what can I do with that! Whalla! YOU ROCK!!! Heading to Ikea to get me about 4 of those!! Thanks a bunch!!
I need this blanket!! please pick me!!
Would love to try to make the pillow and the wreath. Both really great projects!!!
I would love this blanket, it would go great in Atlee’s room!!
If I won this blanket I would put it in my living room, I would love taking naps wiith it and it would add that special touch that my living room is lacking!
If I won this awesome blanket I would make a pillow and throw for my family room redo I’m doing right now.
Such a great, creative idea. The wreath is adorable. We are in the processing of redoing my daughters bedroom and I’d use it to re-purpose a lamp shade and make a corresponding pillow to match. The look and feel would work perfectly with what we are trying to do.
Well, knowing my deep love for all things Ute, I would some how find a way to add a lovely drum and feather to this and keep it in our family room for this mom only with a house full of boys.
Everything is adorable!! I’d love to try some scarves or a pillow with the Ikea blanket!!
I need this blanket to transform my ugly lamp shades in my living room!
Oh my goodness! I love love love all of your cute ideas! I have been slowly working on decorating our master bedroom and this cute blanket would be the perfect touch for texture on the end of my bed! I hope I will but good luck to all!!!
Loved all of these amazing ideas!
I would add it to my new living room! It’s perfect for my leather couches. I have to get new items because my ex took everything.
I really like the pillow you made. I would probably make one of those out of it.
I am not sure. Now I want one to make a pillow and I want one for napping. Decisions, decisions.
I’d make a scarf, a skirt, maybe a few pillows… 🙂
If I won this blanket, I would wrap up in it with my two little boys in our rocking chair for story time!
Such a great project!
I would make a romper set for my niece and her America. Doll;)
I don’t think I’ve ever seen this blanket at my local IKEA! I would love to make some fluffy pillows for my bed!!
We’re buying a new house, so this would definitely go in my living rooM!
I definitely need to get some of these blankets! Me and my 3 maltese would love to nap with them!
It sounds like it would be the perfect blanket for snuggling in the family room and I would have to beg my brother to trek over to Ikea to get me another for making the perfect snuggle pillows!
I sounds like I would need one blanket for making fun snuggly pillows and another just for snuggling! Thank you for the chance to win one!
I am a total blanket FANATIC! I never have enough blankets and it would probably follow me around the house everywhere. That’s right, it would follow me. 😉
I would have a tough time deciding whether to use it as a blanket or make the wreath and pillow you made! So cute!
I desperately want a throw blanket for my modern couch. Unfortunately it’s Ivory colored. So I’m thinking that some dye will have to come into action with this blanket. Which I would TOTALLY blog about!
Oooooo the possibilities are endless!!! I”m thinking a snuggle one on the couch:)
Oooooooo the possibilities are Endless!!! I’m thinking a snuggly blanket for the couch

I would love to have this blanket to snuggle with when I am nursing my tiny boy. I need something warm for the rocking chair!
I would love to use it for baby pictures! thank you
I would love to use it with newborn pictures! so cute! thank you
These are WARM WARM WARM. I have four or five of them, and they keep me warm tossed over my bed on extra cold nights. My cats also love them to snooze on because they hold and give back body heat.
I just made a shelter for a neighbourhood stray cat a couple of weeks back inside a tarp-covered storage box outside my front door. I piled up several of these throws underneath a chair with a comforter thrown over the top. He discovered it several days ago and has been keeping toasty in the -20ºC overnight temperatures (and the less drastic but still cold daytime temps)! One happy IKEA BENNY cat!
