I had alot of time to think creatively while on maternity leave and have opened a new store to sell some of the (hopefully) great ideas I had for baby and kids items that I love. My new store is called: Swaddle . Dwell . Baby. The first and in my opinion, the most important, are several swaddle blankets.
I am a big proponent of swaddling. It kept me sane with my first baby and had done the same with my newly born second child. I created my double layer swaddle blankets because both my babies were/are wee during the cold months and I love stretchy swaddle blankets much more than woven. Flannel is great and cozy but my babes easily pull out of the wrap because I just can't get the swaddle tight enough. I found with gauze I can get the swaddle nice and tight (the way my babies like it) but cotton gauze just isn't warm enough. By backing the gauze with cotton knit I can keep the stretch and gain the warmth. These blankets are so cozy and my added details really make my swaddle blankets awesome sauce! One blanket is hand stamped and painted with open apple slices. Another features 3 polka dotted polka dots and another shines with a Morrocan style reverse applique in a bright green print. I wish I could keep them all but I already have plenty thanks to all my prototype sewing. I hope they will be a big success so I can make many, many more.
