Handmade Items WAHM made

A little off topic

>I have talked about “free for shipping” drawings on hyenacart before.  In stalking some FFS diapers, I came across a homemade “taggie” blanket that I loved, made by DooDooRags.  I loved it so much, I contacted her right away to see if she could make another one for me.  I entered the drawing, but as I expected, I didn’t win!

As it turns out, she makes diapers too!  So I guess this isn’t totally of topic.

I had seen taggie blankets when my daughter was little, but she wasn’t really into that.  My son loves the tags on burp cloths and such, so this will be perfect for him!  The front is an adorable puppy print and the back is a bubble minky fabric, giving him another texture also.

Those are the sellers photos, I asked and she said I could use them.

This is too cute, and I love that I’m supporting a work-at-home-mom instead of buying a factory produced item from a big corporation.

I started working on this post last week and I got the blanket today.  Um…squee!!!!  It is so freaking adorable.  I wish we had feel-o-vision because it is soooo soft.   As I suspected, my son latched onto it (and the “tags”) right away.  I LOVE this and I can’t believe it cost so little.  It is beautifully made and I wouldn’t know it wasn’t a pricey, mass produced item  if you didn’t tell me.  Actually, that’s not true.  It’s too well made to be factory made.

I am going to update this post with “action” shots soon, I’m pecking this out one-handed while nursing a sleepy boy right now. (see below!)

I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to buy anything from this seller and when I have a few bucks to spend, I am definitely trying one of her diapers!!  She told me “I am better at diapers! I mostly make the taggies for gifts and for my son.”  So if she is better at diapers, they sure must be great!  I think a taggie blanket would be a really nice baby gift, especially if you worked with her to find a fabric that would match the nursery decor.

    How can I contact the seller/creator of the taggie blanket in the photo. I would like information on it, and may be interested in purchasing one like it for my Grandson.
