Custom Baby Blankets
Custom Baby Blankets
THE PRICE IS NOT $150 !!! We put that there to avoid getting an order before interacting to learn what you want and determine the actual price.
Sheep Dreamzzz baby blankets are beautiful, and every one feeds a family in need, but sometimes you want something a little different. We've made a number of custom blankets, most of them shown below, and are happy to discuss having one knit just for you.
There are a few challenges, so once you understand these feel free to contact us about some custom work.
- There is no "economy of scale" for larger blankets when it comes to knitting. A blanket that's twice the size requires twice the yarn and labor. We will work to accommodate, but understand that anything less than a proportional increase in price can only come out of the knitter's pay. If we give this to her as extra work that she would not otherwise receive, she may be willing to take it on.
- If we need to purchase yarn that we don't already have or that is sourced outside of our normal yarn suppliers, it may cost more and we have to pass that extra cost on to you.
- Further to this last point, we also have to get the yarn to Nicaragua, have the blanket made, and get it back. This can take a month or more (depending on our travel plans), so don't view this as an "order now/receive in time for next week's shower" -type of scenario.
All that said, we really enjoy custom work! So here are some examples of what we've done.
Here's a concise list of customizations we've done or can think of:
- Larger Blanket
- Other Color
- Multiple Colors, i.e. blanket body vs. edge
- Satin Border (blanket binding) added after knitting
- Embroidery - name, birth date, etc.
- Team Logo
- Different Color Sheep - white, cream, gray, pink, blue, yellow, etc. It coul even be a mix of colors or one black sheep!
We will consider any request and give you an honest answer about what it will take to accomplish and when you would receive it. And even though it might be a little complicated, rest assured that your blanket will help a woman in need just as much as one that has already been made.
Hi! I have had soooo much fun buying this blanket!!! The whole process has been a pleasure from start to finish! I was able to easily customize my blanket to a bigger size with much communication with Steve and Sandy. They have been a joy to work with. Prompt in responses, communicating with me all through (with Covid there were delays etc.), very personable and very accommodating to my own personal needs in my order! They even sent me pictures of our blanket with the lovely woman who was knitting it for us!!! She did an amazing job! We absolutely LOVE the blanket!!! Its perfect and the color is perfect and the little sheep are so cute and soft, I couldnt stop touching them! Haha! We bought this for our 1st granddaughter who isnt born yet, so we havent given the blanket to our son and daughter in law, but are sure they will LOVE it too! We are probably going to make this a family tradition for each new grand baby!!! Thank you Steve, Sandy and Cruz! ?
We enjoyed making the blanket, Andrea. We know it took a while but we also were thrilled with how it came out!
Our blanket is spectacular! Wonderful quality and the colors are just what we hoped! We ordered a custom-made one with colors of my husbands favorite Pro Football team. We bought this with the intention of it becoming a family heirloom and there is no doubt it will last a long time! The communication was great when ordering and during the time it was being made. We are so glad to support the women and their families. 100% recommend purchasing one for family, friends or for gifts.
