New Listing -- My 1st "Wubby" a Baby/Toddler Security Blanket

I recently had etsy member Jennifer of My Sweet Baby Love Boutique contact me about a CUSTOM order for a small baby security blanket, for her toddler to carry around. (Jennifer makes the most adorable baby shoes, so be sure to check out her shop) She told me the colors she wanted but left the design up to me...and this little beauty is what I came up with. (the colors remind me of dyed easter eggs)

I was in the middle of making it when I had a "AHA moment", I don't have too many of those and am always thrilled when I do. I've never seen these small blankets made before, and my baby (who just turned 23 on the 1st day of spring) had a favorite "blankie" that she carried everywhere and HAD to sleep with everynight. By carrying it everywhere, it of course, was drug on the floor, tripped over and needed washing often. (wish I had a pic of it to show you, I know she still has it)

Raspberry & Orange Creamcicle--My 1st "Wubby" Baby/Toddler Security Blanket

Sooooo, how great would it would be for a little one who's toddling around, to have their own "blankie" or "wubby" that you don't have to worry about them tripping over, and they can take everywhere with them so they always have something familiar to snuggle up to!

And Jennifer mentioned that her little one (6 months old), puts everything in her mouth, so decided on 100% organic cotton yarn for her blanket and I plan to do all future ones in organic cotton as well.

I made up the crochet pattern as I went, Jennifer wanted 18"-20" approximate size and it ended up around 19" (I think the size also makes it perfect for a doll blanket)...since making hers, I've made the Raspberry & Orange Creamcicle--My 1st "Wubby" Baby/Toddler Security Blanket in the other pics, and I've just finished a 3rd one in Spring Green, cream and white colors (still have to wash and block it and take pics, but hopefully I'll have it in my shop by the weekend).

I am having so much fun chosing the different color combinations and making up the different patterns (I hope to offer the patterns in my shop eventually). I keep making different items and searching for my selling "niche"....we'll see how these sell, and I'm really hoping they do, because I LOVE making them!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me know what you think of them or what color combinations you think go well together, I love constuctive criticism and suggestions!

I love my daughters Wubby! I get compliments everywhere I go, you did such an amazing job, I actually had bought another "wubby" for her the same day that I talked to you about making this one and theirs was a little less expensive, but when I look at the two of them, I see why. Yours is like art! The pictures really did not do it justice. It is something that I am sure that my daughter will pass down to her duaghter someday. I can't thank you enough for your attention to detail and making this so lovely!
