Call me a blanket snob, but it drives me crazy when a blanket isn’t finished as perfectly on both sides. Considering most babies kick the thing all over the place, why even bother picking out a beautiful fabric if all anyone is going to see is the solid underside?
Mairzey Dotes, who we discovered here last year, is tackling this grave issue head-on with their new line of handmade reversible blankets. Filled with cotton batting, they soften nicely with every wash. The Mockingbird/Polka dot combo is striking for Spring and the Paisley Dot is a great gift for a mom-to-be friend with the insane willpower to resist knowing the sex of her baby. And toddlers will enjoy the power of dictating whether you tuck them in "dot side up or paisley side up."
Trust me new moms, that may not seem like an issue now. But it will be. Oh how it will be. -Liz
Congratulations to Tamara L, winner of the Mockingbird blanket!
