Blankie Keeper

A friend, fellow Jr. Leaguer and crafty mama colleague Leslie Smith recently gave me 2 blankie keepers for my boys. She is the brain behind the great (read: wish i had thought of it) idea that is a Blankie Keeper -  hiding those nasty blankets inside a cute little cover!

i had the perfect blanket in mind for it too...my sister is going to pee her pants laughing when she sees this blanket too...it goes back some...it started out a comforter - i think double size comforter...i think it was my Uncle Jeff's and then somehow became my brothers and then when my brother got kicked out left the house i inherited it. that is already a nasty start i know...but the thing was perfectly worn in ya know? so i took it with me to college - got teased by everyone about it, but everyone fought over it...it started to rip and tear and the filling would ball up...it got even nastier lets just say...

at that point it had sentimental value and it was still so soft so when i was pregnant with bryson i cut it up and removed the poly-fill and even attached some embroidery yarn little dimples...it didnt help though - still not cute...but now bryson sleeps with it every night and now i can display it without the world knowing how nasty it is...umm...until now i guess...the blankie's sordid history is out!

Thanks Leslie!
