"She makes coverings for her bed ..." Proverbs 31:22
What is Nita Blankie?

I started making these Blankies for my friends about ten years ago, and they have always been a delightful and welcomed gift. My daughter's name, Allyson, is spelled with a 'y' and it's next to impossible to find anything personalized for her. The Blankie was the perfect answer and such a special keepsake.

The Blankies are embroidered with a name and a small design on the fleece side and Minkee or some other type of plush fabric for the backing. Ribbon loops are spaced around the outer edge, giving a baby something to play with or a loop to clip to a stroller so they won't fall off.

Most Blankies are approximately 30" x 30", but as each Blankie is unique, it may vary a few inches either way. You can choose the two colors YOU need for that special gift, perhaps to match the nursery. Email me at rdyefam@yahoo.com and I will be happy to work with you to make a very special gift if you 'Nita Blankie'!

Merry Christmas!!

Christmas is such a special time of year - what a blessing that God loved us enough to send his son to save us!!  Our tree is adorned with snow globes which make the lights really sparkle.   I couldn't resist making the snowglobe quilt after I found the border fabric.  It now adorns our church pew.  The second quilt was a little project I did for my sister's home for the Christmas season.   I hope you and your family have a very merry Christmas!
Jesus truly is the reason for the season!!

Sock Monkey

Sock monkeys are becoming popular again. This cute sock monkey design went great with the little outfit I found. Brown and red turned out to be a great color combination!!! Brown and red would also work well with a football design for a little boy!!

We have so many blessings to be thankful for everyday!!! I am especially thankful for a Heavenly Father who loves me, for my loving family, and for all my sweet friends!!! This will be baby Isaac's first Thanksgiving, and it is so hard to put into words how very thankful we are for little Isaac. It always amazes me how someone so little can impact people's lives in such a huge way!!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!

Gift Certificate

Going to a shower and not sure of the baby's name yet?  A gift certificate for the mom-to-be is a great gift!!!  Each gift certificate comes with a miniature blankie and the recipient can choose their favorite colors and design!

Nita Blankie

I finally made time to make a "sample" blankie for those who want to see a blankie before you order one. I decided to go with the lime green and brown which is such a great color combo!!! If you would like to see a sample, just let me know! I also have gift certificates available with a tiny blankie to go with it. This works out great if you are going to a shower and don't know the name of the baby yet!

This n' That

We have been busy with fall activities at my house, so I haven't had a lot of time to post pictures of new blankies, but here are a couple of recent ones. The sports design has been really popular for the little boys. Girls are still partial to the polka dots. Brown works so well with any color - pink, lavendar, blue, green, and yellow just to name a few!!!

Hadley & Grayson

Funny thing about these two blankies made for two little ones in Jeff City - my daughter and I share the middle name of Jean like the girl blankie and I have a nephew named Grayson like the boy blankie.  

This is the same cowboy hat as the purple one for the little cowgirl - just boy colors this time.

Snug as a Bug in a Rug

My kids have always loved collecting bugs and butterflies in jars, bug cages, and any container they could find with holes in it.  I still have to laugh when I think  of them searching the backyard pulling their red wagon filled with various containers and their nets hanging over their shoulders looking for the next prize find!!! 

This quilt was made for a very special friend for her little boy.  May he enjoy hours of playing outside, catching bugs, and having a picnic with Mom & Dad!!!  My mom did the quilting on this special project making the bug cages and spider webs look so realistic.  She even stitched his name and birth date in the border.

Thanks Mom - you do such an awesome job and are always inspiring me!!!

This n That

A little bit of this n' that - - - a "big sister" blankie who loves dolphins (pink & pink), a "generic" girl blankie (black & pink), and a "generic" boy blankie (brown & green).  How can you go wrong with a boy blankie that reads "frogs & snails & puppy dog tails that's what little boys are made of"  ??

Pink & Green

Pink and green turned out to be a cute combination with the daisies!! My bedroom set as a little girl had the same colors in it. Funny how things do come back in style -- guess I should have hung on to the set for my little girl!!! I also saw a bedroom set with these same colors in it when I was at the mall the other day!! Fun new color combo for a blankie!!

This is a great design for your little all star!!! This blankie was done for a toddler, so a lot of basketball, baseball, football, and even golf ribbons were used around the edge of the blankie.
