There are lots of different kinds of blankets out there. We have throws that you might have on the back of a couch to curl up with to watch a movie. We have comforters, afghans, and baby blankets. Oh don’t get me started on baby blankets… (okay, okay – you twisted my arm). There are lovies, crib blankets, stroller blankets, receiving blankets – pretty much all shapes and sizes.
I like making blankets the most out of everything I create. I like how useful they are. I like how comforting they can be. I like how excited parents-to-be are when they imagine their little ones wrapped up in something I created. I’m not sure if it’s ever happened, but when I make them, I imagine that these will be security blankets that they carry around for years. Perhaps something to give their own children. (okay – I know THAT last part hasn’t happened because I’ve only been doing this for a few years, not decades).
Anyway – Here are some blankets I’ve made over the years:
This is a lighthouse blanket I made. It is around the size of a twin bed. The picture shows it almost complete, I still had to weave in some ends on the back at the time I took this picture.
This is a monogrammed blanket that I made for a baby of a lady in AKA sorority (see the pink and green). 🙂 It’s a crib blanket size.
My personal favorite: Jim Morrison blanket. This thing was huge! It’s fit perfectly on a full size bed. It was super soft and quite warm. It had some heft to it too!
The next blanket I have to show is actually for sale. Dream is ($150).
This was made with a little girl in mind – but really, it would be nice for anyone. It’s a good size throw and would work well over the back of a couch to decorate a living room or bedroom.

This is actually one that’s ready to ship. However, I do take special orders if you’d like 2 other colors. Please allow 3 weeks for creation. The special order is the same price as well!
Another custom blanket I can make with any colors you would like is an initial blanket. It’s really a little stroller blanket.
Here is one that’s no longer for sale, but is a good example of one:
Hey look! It’s the same colors. 🙂 These initial blankets are $70.
I really love the personalized blankies for little babies. It just seems to make them even more special.
Well – those are some of the blankets I’ve made…. I hope you enjoyed checking them out!
