Favorite Things blankets are such a fun and special way to celebrate a loved one! I love to give these blankets as birthday gifts, Christmas gifts or even milestone graduation gifts. The blanket is covered in their favorite colors, hobbies, sports, teams, etc. When you place your order, I will reach out to you to collect all the information you'd like on the blanket and then I get creating entirely custom art. Creating new art and designing a one-of-a-kind blanket takes time; please check my Turnaround Time page to make sure you order enough in advance.
Why This Blanket Is So Special:
- Front and Back Minky: the front is a printed minky and the back (and trim) is a longer-pile, ultra plush minky. I only use the highest quality, long lasting materials. I will help you choose the perfect back fabric to coordinate with the blanket colors.
- Meaningful Design: original art and patterns capturing the life of your loved one.
- Machine Washable: Colorfast! You can wash these blankets at home without worry of bleeding colors. Just don't use heat or fabric softener. (See "Care Instructions" for more details.)
- Handmade, Local Small Shop: I design every piece of art on the blanket, place every fabric order, wrap and ship every blanket. My talented seamstress andn I are both full-time moms in Kaysville, UT. This is not a generic, bulk operation - you and your blanket get our full love and attention.
The Story Behind the Blanket:
This was one of the first blanket styles I started making. When my husband's dear grandpa passed away, I wanted to do something to console the family, bring a reminder of the good times, and have a way to teach my children about him. I made a Memorial Blanket for his wife and kids and it is a treasure in our home today. I quickly adapted that idea for our kids and cutomers' kids for Christmas and it has been a hit ever since!
