Blankie - Safe Arrival

The little blanket for Beth's nephew made its way safely across the Atlantic so now I can show you the latest in baby comforters (ok, the latest in my line of baby blankets) - this one with a traffic theme, all traffic lights, cars and stop signs. I hope that Liam likes it!




There have been a few alterations to the format - a little bit of stuffing in the tyres, a button so that you can attach the blankie to the pushchair/stroller - I loved the colour of the button and that's what made me think of a way to use it on the blankie! 

Now who shall the next one be for???

That's the coolest thing ever. My little boy loves the blankets people made for him, but none are as interactive as this.

WOW! I love your blankies and this one has to be my favourite so far. The traffic theme is a great idea and the green button is a fab addition.
Please start your own custom blanket business! I'd be first in line for and adult-sized one :)

This is a fab idea and I love the details. The fabric looks so soft and perfect for a newborn.
