A number of months ago, I decided to use some minky I had bought last year, to make new blankets for the girls.
Their room is quite cold in the winter, and my youngest especially, really likes the feel of minky. The blankets they had a babies were barely long enough to keep them covered anymore, so in a few hrs, I had these 2 whipped up.
K's was made with some scraps, but she loves it. The blue has hearts in it, so that was her favorite part.
They bring them everywhere they go. Their "warm blankets" travel with them to bed, the couch, the car, friends houses, and make they great forts too!
