Tomorrow morning is the launch of the pop of color collection. There will be five ready to ship blankets listed.

I could not be more excited.

I have made these blankets for quite a few people and they are always a huge hit.

This batch is made with a super soft wool and acrylic blend. The finished fabric has an amazing drape and sheen.

This ultra hot pink was the inspiration for the entire collection.
I was tired of using "baby" colors to make children's blankets so decided to punch up the color pallet

This ocean/teal blue is perfect for boy babies and toddlers alike. The vibrant blue is pleasing for their Mama's too!

This color was by far the most difficult to capture correctly. Its a beautiful deep Royal Purple, close to an eggplant color.

There is nothing better

I love it when mom's send me photo's of their children with the items I've made.

There really is nothing better than seeing something you put so much love into making, being used.

This was one of the first pop of colour blankets I made, the hot pink was screaming to be made into something that would really make it pop.

Mama did an amazing job at styling baby S, the tutu and headband match perfectly.


 I was also given a special request to make this owl sleep set. Though it could have definitely been made longer, I'm pretty pleased with the outcome. 

I can't wait to see how she grows with her blanket, when I'm making them I always envision toddlers waddling around dragging the blanket behind them. I love that something I made will become a part of their child hood and their memories for years to come. 

It's not such a bad legacy to leave behind.

I've been hooking up a storm



After deciding last week to open up my sales to online as well as in person sales, I have been working like a mad woman to stock my etsy shop.




My Pop of Color collection is one of my favorite, I love how the vintage granny square gets such a facelift, simply with the addition of a modern color pallet.

I am hoping to have an update with quite a few ready made blankets to choose from.

If you are interested in one of this months remaining custom spots, please email me (located int he contact me tab) and we go over the details.
