When my son was born, he received a cute little blanket with an adorable bear head in the center of the blanket. He loving referred to his blanket as “BB”. When my daughter was born the following year, she was given a lovely soft blanket with satin that she just loved (and still loves) to snuggle against.
My son’s blanket which is now 4 year old has not withstood the test of time, as the little bear and blanket have been overly loved and worn. My daughter’s blanket – just 2 years old – has worn incredible well but she’s sad that she doesn’t have a little animal to love on her’s.
So after finding much fault with my children’s security blankets, I took the best of both and started making larger, better fabric, more durable animals, and giving them as gifts for my expecting friends.
I love making the little animals and hope to recreate some of the love that my children have for their blankets in other families.
