I was looking through my cedar chest the other day and found some very special baby blankets I had made when my now grown children were babies. Actually for my first born, I had his crib sheets, bumper pads, bed skirt and baby blanket all complete before he was even born and I did not even know I was expecting a boy. I just knew Care Bears was a perfect theme!
Now, 25 years later, the blanket on the left is the same blanket as the one pictures above. It was well loved and is so fragile. I decided to put that one away for safekeeping and make my son a “travel blanket” with the same fabric, maybe when he was about 2. Even that one has seen its share of cuddling(and washings) 🙂
For my youngest, I also made a blanket and decided at the time, I would like a nice shade of minty green. And wouldn’t you know it till this day, his favorite color is green!
I tried to get a close up shot of how threadbare this poor blanket is. I can actually see the batting right through the top layer of fabric.
I will have to have my daughter send me some photographs of her baby blanket as she took it when she moved away. I will post at a later date!
