"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'!

A Little About Me

I started sewing as a young girl - taught by my grandmother, mother, and Mrs. Brown my Home Ec teacher.  I have always loved sewing and creating things and my mother is such an inspiration to me with her endless artistic talents.  My family is always encouraging me and giving me new ideas!! Now that my children are school age, I have more time to be at the sewing machine.  I love to make quilts for friends and family depending on what strikes my interest.  I started making personalized baby blankies about seven years ago for friends and family.  In the last few years I have had requests from others for the blankies and thought this would be a great way to share the latest blankies and projects I am working on.  I hope you enjoy my blog site!!  If you need to contact me, please feel free to email me at rdyefam@yahoo.com
