"She makes coverings for her bed ..." Proverbs 31:22What 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to work with you to make a very special gift if you 'Nita Blankie'!

Lavender and brown may be the new pink and brown!! Definitely becoming popular!! This little cowgirl hat can easily be turned into a cowboy hat using brown or blues. Many of the designs I use can be changed to fit your little ones favorite color or match the nursery colors!!! This is a great design for your new little cowboy or cowgirl!!!

Lavender and brown for a little girl turned out to be a great new blankie color combination!! Especially for the fall!! I have a couple of other new combinations I am working on this week - one being pink and green. It's always fun to try new combinations and see how they turn out!!!

Next week brings the end of summer and our weather has already started having a crispness to it. Fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year! Hayrides, bonfires, visiting pumpkin patches, and football games are some of our favorite fall activities. We have our favorite quilts that we take to all of our fall activities--these blankies are great for the littlest of ones to keep them protected from that crisp fall air!!
