I never realized how many blankets you accumulate when you have a baby. I can tell you that after receiving so many blankets for my little girl, not all blankets are created equally. She has received some beautiful department store blankets that fell apart after a few washes, and others that have made it through several washings with no problems. Although she has received so many blankets, she never received one that was made just for her. I think there is something special about making a personalized blanket for a baby. It becomes a keepsake that they can use, and then hold on to when they are older. As for myself, I know how attached children can become to blankets. I had a favorite blanket that I took everywhere with me. My mom use to call me Linus, from Charlie Brown, because I was never seen without my blanket.
I recently worked with myubby and created a custom blanket. I had the option to write something special on the blanket, but decided to just go for something plain and chose a lavender dotted pattern on one side with a fluffy lavender underside. It was finished with a brown satin trimming. When the blanket arrived, it was beautifully wrapped and tied, making a perfect presentation.
This is the first time I have ever made a custom blanket and I felt that I was given enough options to match any decor or theme I wanted. In my case, I wanted to keep the blanket very simple, and I was very satisfied with the results. You can visit myubby to see all their styles and options. Not sure which options to choose?
