I designed this blanket as a tribute to all you talented makers (yes, I’m talking to you!).
I wanted to give you a way to be able to stand up and proudly say “I MADE THIS”!
I’m so passionate about encouraging the tribe of generous gifted, inspirational creators out there to celebrate themselves! As makers, we rarely give ourselves credit for what we do. With this statement blanket I wanted to enable you wonderful people to create a permanent reminder for you and those around you of your talent and skill! So give yourself a big pat on the back and be proud of the work you put into this and all of your creations!
