When my daughter, Coco, was born, one of my friends gave her an incredible hand-me-down blanket made of cozy, natural cotton fleece on one side and lovely, soft chambray on the other. It is trimmed with ric rac which gives it just the right amount of playfulness. Coco is now three and she still loves this blanket as do I.
Since receiving this hand-me-down, I have always had that nagging feeling that I should probably return it to my friend sooner rather than later. Because Coco and I BOTH love it so much, I knew this would be a sad moment. What a dilemma! Solution- I decided to make one of our own. --Page
p.s. If you love the print in the background as much as I do, you can see more work by the artist Tess Darrow at her website, Egg Press.
I adore the Organic Cotton Sherpa from Michael Miller that I used to make this blanket. It's cozier than you can imagine and so natural in both look and feel. You'll love putting it next to your child's skin. I chose a cheery, lemon yellow shot cotton for the back with tan ric rac for the edge to create a warm, gender neutral palette that everyone will love. --Page
