This memory blanket was created start to finish by my daughter, Elizabeth, out of blocks of her outgrown clothing. Many of the pieces hold special meaning. She'd been searching for months, looking for ideas that she could do to raise money for such events as a school trip to Japan (after 2 marking periods, she's holding straight A's in her Japanese class), band trip to Disney World (she's been straight A's with her clarinet since beginning with the instrument in 4th grade), and college (she is currently hoping to major in architecture to combine her love of art with her love of math).
After seeing how well she did on this project, it clicked that THIS was the idea she was looking for! Through this business, she raised the needed funds for Japan. The Disney trip conflicted with Japan, so was not realized and she is now finishing her first semster of college - while a junior in high school!
Have a custom, one of a kind memory blanket created from your child's outgrown clothing. Perfect gift for a child in transition - moving up to the "big kid" bed, first day of school, starting high school, moving off to college, or having a child of their own.
Elizabeth is conscientious, creative, and motivated to turn your children's memorable outgrown clothing into a precious heirloom blanket or cuddly bear they will treasure for years.
Additional notes on blankets: The front of the memory blanket is constructed of the clothing you provide, the back is a soft fleece in a complementary color. You can also provide a backing of your choice of the appropriate size for a $5 discount on the baby blanket size or a $10 discount on the lap blanket size.
Additional notes on bears: The basic bear sits about 15" tall and she'll include bear animal eyes for children ages 3 and up or embroidered felt eyes if the intended recipient is younger than 3, so be sure to let us know. If you are interested in a smaller bear, please contact us as we are working on a smaller pattern that Elizabeth hope's to unveil soon.
