"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 email@example.com and I will be happy to work with you to make a very special gift if you 'Nita Blankie'!
Some stockings are just impossible to personalize without taking them apart and starting completely over. Personalizing can be done with a "tag" to coordinate with your stocking. Always something fun to work on around Christmas time!
Veteran's Day is a great reminder to say thank you to those who have served their country!! Our family is proud of my husband's father for serving in the Vietnam War. He is a true hero and we are thankful for him everyday, not just on Veteran's Day!!
We had the privilege of hosting a Japanese Exchange student this summer. What a great experience for our family!! This was a memory quilt I sent home with our student. I tried to combine Kansas and Japanese fabric just as our Kansas and Japanese families were being combined.
