Over the Rainbow Bridge is a sweet, easily customizable baby blanket in bright, bold colors! It’s the perfect gift for the expectant parents who are waiting to be surprised by baby. You can make a rainbow, or change the colors to match your nursery theme. The blanket is a big size, sure to last for a long time as a blanket, or a squishy mat for baby to enjoy some tummy time. If you want to make a smaller blanket, simply make the striped sections smaller, or for a larger blanket, make them larger!

(Matching hat and sleep sack patterns coming soon!)
