Heirloom Blanket - made to order
A selection of your child's outgrown baby clothes or other pre-loved fabrics re-crafted into a soft, medium weight blanket: great as a throw to drape over your little one in a car seat or when out in the buggy. This blanket also make a fantastic, snuggly comforter.
These cute blankets are handmade from your baby's outgrown clothes. They are a great way to celebrate a first birthday or christening.
We use a contemporary patchwork stripe design that works well with clothing made of bigger motifs and prints mixed with plain fabrics. We can also incorporate lightweight trims such as buttons and pockets to give your finished blanket lots of bespoke character.
We need around 15 items of baby clothing (size 6 months) to make this blanket, and use a cotton, waffle jersey backing in a grey marl colour. The blanket has a lightweight fluffy fleece filling inside to give it some volume, which makes it a bit heavier than a regular baby blanket, but much more cuddly!
This blanket measures approximately 90cms x 90cms.
As this style is made from your clothing, which has already been worn and washed, some areas of the finished blanket will look more aged than others. This is what makes these pieces so special. It also means it will not look exactly like the photos on this site.
Due to the mix of fabrics in this item we recommend that you hand wash and dry flat, naturally.
You send the clothes to us - we make the blanket- we send the finished piece back to you. Simple. It takes 6-8 weeks from receipt of your clothing/fabrics.
We use Royal Mail's Special Delivery service and the price is included in the cost of your blanket when shipping to mainland UK.
