Hello friends! I am so excited to finally let the cat out of the bag…my dear, dear friend Rachel Flesher is joining me in this crazy and fabulous business!
Go back 5 years, and Rachel was the first person to ever introduce me to real swaddling/receiving blankets. She made a set for me when Evie was born, and they were the best! They were the PERFECT size for swaddling her at night.
Now, I use the same blankets for Amelia! Even after using them every day 5 years ago…they are still going strong and still my favorite receiving blankets.
I’ll go ahead and let Rachel introduce herself:
Growing up as the firstborn of 11 children, I’ve had lots of experience with babies. I’ve held them when they laughed, when they cried, when they slept and when they squirmed with joy. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that babies love to be loved. A cozy blanket is often a part of that comfort, and my mother lovingly made flannel receiving blankets for all-weather snuggling. Thanks to her example, I continued the tradition for my own family. Each of my own four babies were wrapped and swaddled in blankets, just like these.
Home is the center of our lives: children, food, learning, crafts. Work and play, learning and relaxing, eating and cleaning, savoring each of these precious moments, grasping at the ribbons of life as they slip so quickly through our fingers.
I pick over fabrics, choosing only the softest prints that I love. Washing, drying, ironing with care, trimming each piece of fabric to the best dimensions. My sewing machine hums happily as we work together to stitch the edges, making the best quality for your baby’s comfort.
This is why I am committed to offering lovingly crafted items to you and your loved ones: because homemade is best made, and each moment should be wrapped with love. My heart goes into every part of my process. Because of the stories from friends to whom I’ve gifted these wonderful blankets over the years and my own experience, I can assure you that these blankets will become a cherished keepsake to each family that receives them.
From Summer: I’ve personally been wanting to offer these blankets in the shop for quite a while, and I’m so glad to have Rachel on board so that you all have access to another great baby blanket and I can continue to focus on the quilty side of things.
You can find all of Rachels beautiful blankets in here in my shop!
