"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'!

Pink & brown and brown & pink worked great for this set of twin girls.  Both blankies are unique, but reversing the colors was a great combo for twins!!!  Most colors I have available for the front and the backing, so it's easy to coordinate for twins or siblings!

Do you have a hunter in your house that can't wait for his little buddy to be big enough to go hunting too?  If so, this would be the perfect blankie design for you!!!  Hunter orange for the soft cuddly backing and a trophy deer on the front with the future hunter's name.

ABC's was the theme for this little one's nursery.  I couldn't resist this soft and comfy fabric with the alphabet on it for the backing when I saw it.  It would look great with a blue or green front too!  What a fun theme!!!

It's getting warmer each day and spring is getting closer.  This little blankie for Kate definitely made me think spring!!!!  The little aprons were for her big sisters so they can be mommy's helpers!!  Welcome Baby Kate!

Turquoise & Black

New color combo!!!!  Turquoise and black - I really like it!!!  Great for a little boy or if you have a little girl in mind, the turquoise would look really cute with pink!!

I think spring is getting closer!!  The name Lily definitely reminded me of spring - - especially with the color lavender!!!  I am behind on my blogging, but have several blankies going, so check back again soon.  Lots of new color combos and some fun new projects too!!
