Announcement   ***Please Note: The shop will be closed from 8/1 until 8/8. Sewing will resume and convos answered upon reopening. Please order now if you need something for early August!***

The shop will only be accepting PayPal payments from now on. Etsy has been experiencing delays in processing Credit Card transactions through their Direct Checkout system which results in order delays. They have no estimated time when this issue will be corrected so I have turned off the option to pay with the Direct Checkout system and don't intend to resume it in the future.

Welcome to my baby things boutique! You'll find carefully handmade and creatively designed baby items here that are ready to ship or made to order. These include premium minky backed, cotton batting interlined, baby-sized patchworks, solid fabric baby and toddler sized blankets, stuffed sewn toys without unsafe attachments and knitted and crocheted baby accessories.

My blankets are different from most on Etsy because they contain 3 layers of quality fabrics and are sewn only with high quality designer cotton quilting collections, some of which are organic cotton and/or nearly impossible to find, along with the highest quality Minky currently made. This combination makes them very special to look at and incredible to feel! I try to use non-traditional, different fabrics as much as possible to make blankets that are quite unique.

I usually respond to convos quickly so please feel free to send me one.

Current sewing time is 3-5 business days (if fabric is in house) until shipping. Please convo me if any questions prior to purchase.

Ready to ship items are shipped within 1 business day of purchase.

Sending your purchase as a gift? I would be happy to include a gift card for you! Just enter your message for the recipient in "notes to seller" at check out. I will be sure to include your special message with your gift and will not include a receipt in the package.

While I do keep most fabrics on hand, some are purchased from my suppliers after you place your order. Sometimes fabrics used in my shop may become suddenly unavailable from the manufacturer. I will always contact you personally by e-mail and Etsy convo if there is a problem with fabric availability.

Currently, I am not sewing larger blankets than those listed, crib rail covers, curtains, valances, crib bumpers, boppy covers, changing table covers, car seat covers, crib skirts or larger than standard size (52 x 28 x 6 inch) crib sheets. My specialty is baby-sized coverlets used as the decorator focal point in the nursery.

Please take time to read the item listing description, including item measurements, before purchase. I try to write honest and very complete descriptions of all my items and really appreciate customers taking the time to read them.

Also take time to read my shop policies and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) at the end of the policies. By completing a purchase in the shop, you are acknowledging that you have read my policies and agree to them. Policies are always evolving so be sure to review them if you're a returning customer.

My shop is a very proud member of TeamEtsyBABY and EtsyKids Team!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find something you and your little one will love!

About

Kristen's Coverlets Story

In October 2011, I had the opportunity to visit the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Library in Hyde Park, NY right near where I spent the first few years of my life. My Great Aunt Lena who lived her entire life in nearby Rhinebeck designed and sewed for FDR’s family and I spent lots of time in her sewing room as a very little girl. I was inspired to start sewing again after this visit and chose to specialize in children's clothing and blankets. My shop became a reality on Etsy in February 2012 and I work in it full-time. I love choosing unconventional fabrics and designs that will make people notice them. Unique fabrics and designs are my passion! Many of these come from my extensive personal fabric collection and are no longer available which makes my items definitely one-of-a-kind!

I have taught crochet classes and am an avid knitter. These abilities tend to go hand-in-hand with my sewing as I can always create an accessory to go with the items I create. I usually have knitted, crocheted and sewn baby items in the shop.

I love to make all kinds of baby blankets including the use of designer cottons, minky and fleece. These are fabrics which become softer over time and wear well. They can be used year round to keep little ones warm, to carry around or to play on. My goal is to make my blankets last for a child as long as they want or need them.

My passion for blankets goes way back...When I was quite little, I had an afghan which I took everywhere with me until it turned into a small square of unrecognizable fabric. While grocery shopping with my parents, I dropped the afghan in the store and, when I realized it was missing, became inconsolable. My wonderful Dad went to the store manager and was able to rescue the afghan from the garbage bin. I would hope that the items I make become favorites with your children and are treasured as much as that afghan square was.

I take pride in the fabrics and yarns I utilize in all of my projects and in the work I put into each one. And yes, I am a Packers fan!

Thanks for the opportunity to share my craft with you!

Frequently asked questions

Do you accept custom order requests?

Custom orders are not currently available.

Do you offer larger sized blankets?

The sizes currently sewn are noted in the listings.

Do you sew other items like boppy pillow covers, curtains, crib rail covers, crib bumpers, crib skirts or weighted blankets?

Not at this time. I do sew standard sized (28 x 56 x 5 inches) crib mattress sheets as well as throw pillow covers that coordinate with the blankets I sell.

Do you sell fabrics and patterns used for your items?

No. I select, coordinate and purchase all fabrics for my items from outside suppliers for my shop's use. I don't sell them separately and am unable to respond to requests to share or sell my sources, square dimensions or instructions for any of my items.

Do you offer embroidered personalization or names on your blankets?

It depends. (Ready to ship blankets cannot be personalized because the "wrong side" of embroidery would show on one of the already sewn sides of the blanket. Embroidery is done before sewing a coverlet.) Personalization, up to 8 letters maximum, is available on SELECT made to order patchwork tops for an additional charge. I do not currently offer personalization on single fabric blankets or the minky side of any coverlet. Please convo me with specific questions before purchase.

Will your blankets cover my crib or toddler mattress?

No. The baby blankets I offer measure 28-30 x 33-36 inches. These sizes are actually much more practical than a crib sized quilt or blanket. They are the perfect size for play time, use in the stroller, car seat, travel and for the nursery. They can be used as a '"lovey" as the child grows. Pediatricians are now recommending that loose blankets not be used in baby cribs during sleep time due to safety concerns.

Can I change the address I want an order sent to after I purchase it?

The address must be correct on the Etsy purchase form at the time of purchase. Etsy and Paypal policies require the "Ship To" section of the order to be the actual shipping address. If you decide to change the address after buying the item, I will refund and cancel your purchase. You can then re-purchase it.

Do you sell wholesale or offer discounts for purchases of 2 or more items?

No. This is my full time job and my items are priced to make it worthwhile for me to work at it full time.
