After many people sent me links to blankets and fabric and looking online for two hours I could not find the right fabric. Daughter and I went to the fabric store and she picked out two different patterns for her new blankie. She picked out elephants with a blue background and babies in pastels on a white background. She chose dark red and dark blue for the trim. All of the materials cost about twelve dollars. I told her that I wouldn’t be able to make the blankie until next week at which point she would be helping me. She was surprisingly fine with that, waiting I mean.
After going to the fabric store she came home and put on her swimsuit to jump through the sprinkler with some other girls on the block. She then grabbed the matierial, while I was not looking, and made a cape out of one piece and gave the other to her friend so they could both be super heroes. Needless to say I have to launder the material. She is actually fine using it as is which works for me. I’d have taken pictures but she has brought it to school for sharing.
The Sponge Bob blankie has been tossed aside for now. I feel kinda bad for it.
I must say I am a little shocked to learn that so many adults still sleep with their childhood blankies. Really quiet shocked. Who knew there were so many fucked up people our there leading normal lives?
Yay for the new blankie!
I was kind of weirded out by so many adults posting about their blankies too. I don’t think I ever had a blankie, but I did have a teddy bear. When I moved out of my parents house the first time it went with me and stayed in the box I packed it in. During my last move I let it go. It was just so silly. The fabric was barely holding together.
I don’t think the number of people who still have their blankies is shocking at all.
Lola, I had a green blankie that my mother threw away when we moved from TX to CO. I wish she hadn’t as I could have used it when she got sick of few months later. I had a Peter Rabbit stuffed animal as a kid and took it everywhere but when the dog chewed it’s face off it was time to let it go, I was about 20 at the time but I wasn’t carrying it around anymore.
Linus, you might be onto something. If more people had blankets, and in my opinion wore footie pajamas, this might be a much better world. If all those CEOs and slimy mortgage brokers had blankets we might not be in this mess right now.
I don’t still have my blanket but sometimes when Mom visits, I nurse a little.
would they be called the Snugglie.
I look forward to seeing a picture of daughter and new blankie. But she has to smile in the picture so we can see that much-discussed tooth.
We adore this blog!

Normal on the outside; nutty on the inside.
That pretty much sums up most people, blankie or not.
I still have a fur blanket from my childhood, because they don’t make things they way they used to.
I also have sheets from my mother that are as old or older than I am. They’re so soft.
I don’t think I ever called anything a “blankie”, though. But I’ve blocked my childhood out, so it’s possible…
Hehe … we all need some kind of security blanket. Mine used to come in a corona bottle.
I have a snugglie & I love it! But, I also have footie pajamas that my hubby & daughter bought me for xmas one year. They are so cozy!!!!!
Of course there are a lot of high-functioning complete nutcases out there.
Explains a lot, doesn’t it?
I always sniffed on the ribbon of the blanket on my bed (which I had rubbed Vicks on) –which explains why I have a turned-up nose and no one else in the family does–someone once asked me if Bob Hope was my father. Anyway…I still sniff of whatever ribbon is on whatever blanket on my bed where ever I may be sleeping.
Congrats on the new blankie!!! Mission accomplished!! Your daughter’s a beauty, btw….
My mom took my blankie away when I was a kid and I never forgave her for that. Now I just snuggle up with a corner of the one on our bed, in the fetal position after some days. 😉
So funny. My sister had a blanket she carried around. Me? I just liked my stuffed animals.
“Who knew there were so many fucked up people our there leading normal lives?”
LOL, so true…
