I was contacted by a Mother of a Future High School Graduate, she asked about creating a blanket of her daughter’s lifetime of athletics and extra-curricular activities.

With T-Shirts and pictures in hand, I transformed her youngest child’s memories into a memento she will experience again and again.

The mother wished to giver her daughter a gift she can carry into her college years.  She requested to include photographs of her daughter.  I converted these photos black and white.  The black and white photographs are stitched onto turquoise and chocolate brown flannel squares (the graduates favorite colors) and incorporated into the whole blanket.

The blanket is backed with a lightweight, warm, and cozy chocolate brown fabric, much like the fabric from the back of Jason’s Baby Clothing Blanket and our Happily Ever After Blanket Collection

Now, with this blanket, she has the ability to curl up with a steaming cup of tea, page turning novel and wrap herself in high school memories and photographs.

The addition of black and white pictures are my favorite part of this blanket.

If you could add pictures to a blanket, what pictures would you incorporate?

There is a charge for the addition of black and white photography.  As well, all color pictures will be converted to black and white pictures (unless you tell me otherwise).  Printing on fabric paper is pretty fun, when using bright colors it can create a new dimension to a project, although after multiple washing the bright and vibrant colors you once had can begin to fade.  This is why I convert all pictures to black and white (unless you tell me otherwise), producing a product with black and white photographs is one which I’m quite proud to ship out to you, it creates a vintage, warm, and inviting comfort which the color photography can not accomplish when added to a blanket.  Pricing for adding photography to your blanket is below (pricing is for any size photograph):

  • 1 picture: $10.00
  • 2-5 pictures: $9.00 each
  • 6-10 pictures: $7.00 each
  • 10+ pictures: 5.00 each
