Announcement    Welcome to Crafty Mom of Twins on Etsy! Blankets always make great gifts either for you or for someone special. I make handmade blankets for everyone from moms and dads to aunts and uncles to teenagers and kids. I have unique, one-of-a-kind patterns that cover all kinds of hobbies and interests including nature lovers, football fans, sports fans, coffee, wine and beer drinkers, fishermen, card players and more!

I make handmade other fleece items such as pillows, beach blankets, stuffed toys, gift bags, pet beds and home décor. I take pride in choosing special fabrics, including vintage fabrics, and most of my blankets and pet beds are one of a kind.

I love camping and the outdoors, and I reflect that in many of my products. I have recently added home décor such as pillows as well as houseware items such as towels, potholders and table runners that can be used in your kitchen or when you go camping. I also have felt items such as calendars and children's holiday games.

Need a different color or size? I would be happy to make a custom order for you. As many of my blankets and beach blankets are one of a kind, if you are looking for a different size or a larger quantity of one of my items, please ask, and I will try my best to get the fabric again, or to get one close to it. Personal attention and customer service is my number one priority. I am not happy unless my customers are happy.

I can personalize any blanket, pillow or bag. And I also make custom blankets. Have an idea? Just ask. I would be happy to work with you and create your ideal product. I love when my customers ask me, "can you make this"? My customers have come up with some really awesome ideas. I like challenges; and I am always honored and happy to be able to make something special for my customers.

I am proudly now listing vintage items from my parents' home (my childhood home) and items I inherited from my best friend when he moved to Florida. I am new to selling vintage, but I promise to sell only quality items in great condition at reasonable prices. Some of the items I will list are very special to me and I hope they find good homes.

As my twins are now young adults, and after 10 years of being a Girl Scout leader, I have decided to destash my massive amount of craft supplies. I offer new supply and craft items at great prices.

Thanks for visiting!

About

Unique fleece and felt items for people and pets.

As an avid camper and Girl Scout leader, I have made many fleece blankets for scout awards and for gifts. I have created other fleece and felt items such as plant pokes and finger puppets to sell at craft shows as fundraising for my troops. With that background, and many ideas in my head, I decided to take my products to Etsy, which has been a dream for a long time.

When I make my blankets, I search for fleece and flannel with rich, beautiful colors, and my favorite prints are animal and nature prints. I use the fabric that really jumps out at me; fabric I just can't pass up because I feel that if I love the fabric that much, someone else will enjoy it as well.

My scouts always liked my blankets, so I decided to create blankets and pillows that can be used for camping or home; warm, cozy and stylish, easy to pack, and many are made with fabric with a camping or nature theme.

I make my toys and plant pokes from my own designs; I do not use store-bought patterns; I make my own. Sometimes I sketch out my design, and sometimes I just start cutting fabric. Every item I make is a one-of-a-kind creation. Ideas just come to me, sometimes in odd places, like in the shower and on my way home from work. Then I can't wait to get home to sketch and cut out my newest project.

I am excited about my new addition to my shop, towels and table runners for home kitchen or camp kitchen. I just added flannel blankets to my shop as well. Flannel blankets are warm but not as heavy and bulky as fleece, and the flannel blankets are sewn instead of being tied like the fleece blankets.

I love being part of the wonderful Etsy community and I am proud to offer quality, handmade items for everyone to enjoy.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Can blankets and pillows be customized?

Yes, any pillow or blanket i make can be personalized with a name or saying of your choice. I charge $5 per word. Letters are cut by hand from fleece and sewn by hand onto the item. I usually use black fleece, but i can use a color of your choosing. I usually put the personalization on the plain side of the item, but i can also put the name on the printed side.

Care instructions

I recommend that all fleece items be machine washed in cold water, gentle cycle. Do not add liquid fabric softener. Tumble dry on low to medium heat. You can use a dryer sheet to minimizr static cling.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I wrap all my handmade items in tissue paper and ribbon to make the packae look pretty. The exception to this is pet beds, large pillows and vintage items. For these items, i usually put tissue paper over the item in the box.

I can send any item as a gift free of charge, wrapping the item in tissue paper and ribbon. No invoice is included in the package. Upon request, i can send a gift tag or card. Also upon request, i can wrap your gift in special paper.

Sizing details

How big is this blanket?.

When I measure my blankets, I do not include the ties; I measure the inside of the blanket only. I list vertical and horizontal measuremets

Can you make a bigger blanket in this style?

The answer is sometimes. Most of the blankets I list are one of a kind. I buy what I need for the blanket, and I usually don't have extra of that fabric. Sometimes I can get the fabric again. If I no longer have the fabric, I will be happy to search my suppliers for fabric that is similar to the one that is listed. I will send you pictures of the fabric that is available, and you can choose from those fabrics.

Sizing details

What size are your blankets?

I make all sizes of blankets. My standard sizes are small (1 yard); medium (1 1/2 yards) and large (2 yards). Upon request, I can make an extra large blanket (3) yards.
