"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'!

Summer Fun

Summer is such an exciting and fun time of year!!!! We are in full swing with our garden - enjoying fresh peas and potatoes. We are also spending a lot of time at the ball park and swimming pool!! Both of these blankies make me think of all the summer activities we are enjoying and would make a great gift anytime of year for that special little one!

One More Grad Towel

I was really busy embroidering graudation towels, but only got very few of them photographed. This is one that I still had left, so I thought I would share it. This gal had given my son Tuba lessons and is planning on majoring in music, so the music notes were a must have addition to her name! Congrats to all the graduates!!

Twin Boys

A little while back I used Pink & brown and brown & pink  for twin girls.  These two blankies were for twin boys.  The blue and brown combination worked great for the little boys!  I like the coordination of colors, but the uniqueness of each blankie for the boys!
