The Perfect Blanket

Last year when I had my baby, I discovered that not all blankets are created equal! Some are to small, some are awkward shapes, and some are too bulky. I discovered that my favorite two blankets were simple soft flannel, 45in (111cm) square, and with no stuffing or batting--just the two layers of flannel. Not only was it easy to swaddle my newborn, but as he's grown into toddlerhood, it's still large enough to cover him for naps or nursing. Gently turned and decoratively topstitched, it's warm and soft, but not too heavy. It fits in a diaper bag or suitcase, but still stays on my shoulder if I throw it there...truly, this is the perfect blanket!
Here are a few of my current offerings
