“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”
― Winnie - the - Pooh


This blanket is the one I designed for my daughter before she was born. She is the daughter I hoped and prayed for, but didn’t think i’d ever meet. I almost lost her three times - once during the pregnancy, once immediately after birth, and once a few weeks after.

She is feisty, sweet, and everything I ever hoped for. I treasure every moment we spend together - even the ones that involve crying.

So here’s a blanket for you to make for someone you love and want a tangible way to show it - a child, spouse, parent, whoever. A way to say I love you, and I never want to live without you.

This blanket is sized from a single motif all the way up to a king sized bed, and it would be a beautiful wedding gift for the favorite couple in your life.
