As a child I had a favourite blanket that I cherished to the point that I took it everywhere with me. I have no idea where it is now, but I presume my mum has kept it somewhere safe.
So when my new niece was born recently, I quickly made my way over to Etsy to purchase a minky blanket from one of my favourite sellers, The Sleeping Babe
I brought a similar one (in green) for my nephew when he was born, and it was so soft I wanted to keep it for myself! So I didn't hesitate to buy one for my new niece, and I am currently considering buying an adult sized one for myself.
