Calvin recently received a really cool baby blanket in the mail which was hand-crafted by Keepsakes-Etc. It features rich luxurious satin in the most appropriate Texas Longhorn burnt orange coupled with cuddly soft white fleece on the reverse. This is the perfect blanket for naps or nighttime in the spring weather. The stitching is uniform and neat, and it matches well with the fabric color. There is no bias tape or ribbon which could possibly unravel after lots of use and care.
It didn’t come with specific washing instructions, but Calvin left his spit-up mark on it only a few minutes after I sat him on it for an afternoon photo session in the backyard. So, I put it in the wash with like colors and tumbled it in the dryer on low heat. It came out looking just as good as when I took it out of the box. No stains, no pilling, no shrinkage. Just a good looking and durable baby blanket personalized for Calvin.
This blanket reminds me of Linus’ security blanket in the Peanuts comic strip, except for the difference in color. I can totally see Calvin adoring this soft and silky blankie well into toddlerhood. I love it, well because it’s got the Texas Longhorns logo emblazened on it. I was able to request personalized monogramming for Calvin’s name and birthdate.
The customized baby blanket arrived with Texas Longhorn baby slippers! They’re even big enough to fit Calvin’s feet (sized 0 to 9 months). They’re not the greatest for walking, but good enough to keep his feet warm on chilly days. For $28.99, Keepsakes-Etc. offers a pretty good deal on a blanket for the littlest fan of big college teams in addition to spirited baby slippers. Personalized monogramming up to 26 characters is only an additional $7.50. For $36.49, you’ve got a great baby gift for parents who are die hard fans of Division I NCAA schools. Keepsakes-Etc. has fleece baby blankets, personalized throws, throws customized from photographs. You can order online or call 1-888-815-3455.
