A Weighted Blanket

I made this weighted blanket for a little girl with sensory issues.  She is "girly," and loves the ocean and dolphins, so I used these blue-ish fabrics that said beach to me....and added in a little sparkle (top left) and a soft minky patch too.

 It's filled in a grid pattern with poly-pellets, so it is machine washable and dryable on low heat.  Mermaid and narwhals included!

I hope it is used and abused and well-loved!

Lainey's teacher asked me to make some puppets for the little theater they have in the classroom.  How fun!  I cut out some fun faces from a fabric panel by the amazing Suzy Ultman!  Then I just created the bodies and arms out of some crazy scraps.

I love how they came out! 

And I really love how they're used in the classroom.  The kids are learning about grammer and punctuation and writing dialogues... so they can use the puppets to act out the dialogues that they write!
