Somehow one blanket turned into many, and before I knew it, each baby at the home needed a special blanket of their own.

A part of the proceeds will go towards making and shipping blankets to South Africa.

Each blanket is special for my customers and I just love making their blanket special for that special little one in their lives!!!!
