****MADE TO ORDER - Once you purchase this blanket, I will order your fabric in. All made-to-order blankets take 4-6 weeks processing time for me to receive the fabric and then make up and ship out your blanket***
This is a beautiful, ultra soft minky blanket for your little one. It features a modern, designer print created by an independent graphic designer and custom printed onto minky fabric. You can't purchase these prints at any fabric store! It is backed with the best minky fabric in a variety of dotted or plush options.
This is a definitely a keepsake blanket and will be the hit of any baby shower. I try to pick on-trend, modern prints, perfect for the modern mom and nursery. It can be even more special when you add embroidery and have it personalized with your little ones name.
I will personally order in your fabric, make your blanket, and ship it out to you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I will be sure to get back to you as my time permits. :)
Minky is an ultra soft fabric, loved by babies and adults. Minky is 100% polyester, and it does not shed once it has been sewn together. The colours stay bright and vibrant and do not fade with washing. To keep your blanket in the best condition possible, please refer below to our recommended laundry instructions.
FRONT: Twinkle, twinkle little star bear design minky
This print was designed by an independent graphic designer and custom printed onto minky blanket. The designer receives a commission every time their design is printed onto fabric.
BACK: grey "zebra" plush minky (grey plush and backing of fabric is black)
I use only Shannon Fabrics minky for my backing. They are the best of the best, super plush, and wash amazingly well.
Dotted vs Plush?
Dotted minky is the minky with the raised dimple dots, and is considered a medium weight minky.
Plush minky has a higher pile and is more plush, and is considered a heavy weight minky.
You have two sizes to choose from. Please note all sizes are from UNCUT and UNSEWN fabric. Each blanket is handmade and the finished size will be smaller than the dimensions shown.

One question I often receive is why the price of this blanket is more expensive than other blankets you may see on Etsy. The basic answer is the fabric. The patterned fabric is available online only, from one website only. The designs are created by independent graphic designers, and custom printed onto a variety of different fabric options. I choose to have the designs printed onto minky to keep your blankets as soft and vibrant as possible. The graphic designer receives a commission every time their design is purchased to be printed. This makes the fabric itself at least double the cost of a regular minky fabric you can purchase in store. The backing fabric I use is Shannon Fabrics rather than your regular basic fabric store minky. This fabric is also more expensive, but it is a thicker and more plush minky. I only use the best fabrics for my blanket. So the majority of the price you pay is for the fabric, and then you are paying for the time it takes me to order the fabric, make the blanket and ship it out to you. And after that I need to make sure I cover my fixed expenses of running a business.
As a buyer it is important that you make an informed purchase and know you are receiving a top-quality blanket. These are not your average store-bought blankets, or even your average store-bought fabric blanket (I do have some of those available in the shop if you are looking for a more economical choice). Also, I'm located in Canada. This means I have had to pay a crazy US-Canada exchange rate on your fabric, as well as import taxes. This is great news for fellow Canadians - I have taken care of all those costs so you don't need to. So please, do your research, and check out other shops on Etsy selling these same fabric prints before making your purchase. If you read all of this thank-you! :)
1. Please wash before first use. There may be some fluff left on your blanket from when it was made.
2. Machine wash in cold.
3. Tumble-dry low or air fluff. Your blanket will dry very quickly and only needs a few minutes in the dryer.
DO NOT IRON.
Made with LOVE in a smoke free home, by one very busy mom of 4 little ones.
