From French Toast to Baby Blankets

This shop is a long time dream between two crafty (former) roommates. We not only bonded over our love of french toast sticks in the college cafeteria, but of making items that can spread a little fun, joy, and beauty around. Each item is made because this is something we love to do - we only make items that we would want ourselves. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do :)

Right now, our shop hosts beautifully handmade baby blankets in both traditional and non-traditional patterns to fit the nursery for that unique baby!

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Blankets are made in 3 sizes:

Small: 36x36 inches - favored for infant swaddles
Medium: 35x50 inches - works well as both a swaddle and transition to a toddler blanket
Large: 50x70 inches - works well for older children and can cover a twin bed

What fabric should I choose?

All of the fabrics are great choices - it just really depends on what you are using the blanket for. For classic swaddled photos with newborns, I recommend the Jersey Knit - its soft and stretchy. A cotton organic alternative (with slightly more weight) would be the Organic Knit. Muslin also makes a great lightweight swaddle. Minky and Fleece blankets work best for floor or stroller blankets and/or toddlers.

What kind of fabric prints best?

This is tricky - color varies so much screen to screen, eye to eye, and fabric to fabric. Designs with more color or darker colors will also print differently as well. For darker colors, I recommend the Jersey knit, minky, or fleece. Lighter/pastel colors work well on all of the materials. Of course, shades will vary depending on the fabric content (generally brighter colors on synthetic materials and slightly more muted on cotton/natural)

How many proofs do I get?

As many as we need to make it what you want. We can try out different fonts and different colors as well as make slight alterations to the design if needed. My goal is for you to have a special product that you love.

How is this made?

Blankets are printed using a professional printing service - think of fabric running through a printer! This means these are durable prints that will stand up to washing with minimal special care (simply use phosphate free detergent, wash on gentle cycle, and tumble dry low - thats it!)
