When I got married my Mom passed down a memory box of keepsakes that she had collected throughout my child. Everything from school work, awards to special mementos were enclosed in this box.  Among the collection of keepsakes was my tattered and patched security blanket. A blanket to which traveled everywhere with me during my childhood. One that I sought comfort in when snuggled up in bed, and when the goings got rough as a toddler. Because we can all appreciate what being a toddler was like! It was a tough life… or so we thought.

To this day when I see my security blanket sitting in that box, I instantly feel a sense of warmth, love and comfort. While I may not carry the security blanket around with me anymore, I now have two young children who heavily rely on their very own security blankets. Honestly, I can say I get it. I understand why they would turn to them for snuggles and comfort, especially on road trips, at nap time or nightfall.

We have had many scares over the years where the security blanket has mysteriously vanished, and all hell breaks lose around the house. Trust me – you don’t want to know the pandemonium that ensues when my children lose their security blankets (even if just for a few hours). It’s like the world is over as we know it.  Of course in the end luck is on our side and we thankfully locate the said security blanket.

However, one issue we have run  into with my children’s security blankets over the years is that the security blankets tend to fall apart from all the wear and tear.  They simply just aren’t durable. I plan to fix that with my next little bundle.

I was recently sent a beautiful minkee baby blanket from Sun 7 Designs, which was personalized with love for Baby #3.

Sun 7 Designs Baby Blanket

Sun 7 Designs is located in Calgary AB, and specializes in custom designed personalized Minkee baby blankets.  A few years ago, Valery (the owner of Sun 7 Designs) came across “Minkee” fabric and immediately fell in love with it.  From there she got the idea to create blankets that would not only be soft and cuddly, but also have an heirloom quality. Valery knew that if she could create something that would be unique by personalizing each blanket with baby’s name, and a design that related to the baby or child.  Not only are Sun 7 Designs blankets a keepsake, but often Valery will hear from many mothers that the softness of the Minkee fabric creates a sensory touch, and caressing the blanket soothes the baby into falling asleep faster.

I was overly impressed with the Minkee Baby Blanket that I received from the moment it fell into my arms. Just holding the blanket you can tell it was made with love. Each blanket can be personalized, which makes each baby blanket that leaves Sun 7 Designs have a special unique flare. Not one is alike.

Valery pays so much attention to detail when designing each blanket. Everything from the personalized embroidered name to the double stitching proves that the Minkee Baby Blankets are very durable, and could withstand the wear and tear of an infant or toddler.

I cannot wait for my new addition to join us in March, so that he or she too can enjoy this gorgeous blanket.

    My favourite is Silver. We wont find out the gender of the baby so have to keep it gender neutral. The silver works either way, can be feminine or masculine and is beautiful!
