"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 Sock Monkey

I have done some red and brown sock monkey blankies, but this is the first one using pink and brown. The brown backing with the pink polka dots tie it all together for a sweet little girl!

Kennedy - Yellow & Green

Yellow and green are one of my favorite color combinations!!! Brown was also being used in this nursery, so the brown flowers made a great accent!!

Japanese Exchange

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.
