The front of my book blankets are adorned with my uniquely designed illustrations that have been digitally printed onto fabric. The backs of these blankets are your choice of flannel, minky dot, or faux fur. I sew the two pieces of fabric together with my sewing machine. It is not a quilt, so there is no inner batting layer or stitching over the top. The blankets are top-stitched around the edges to create a finished look.
The swaddle and throw sizes have a cotton top. The oversized blanket has a minky top. The color/pattern of the back fabric (flannel, minky, or faux fur) will vary based on what I have in stock. If you have a specific request for backing fabric, or have any questions about the fabric in general, please message me before ordering. I may be able to accommodate requests but it largely depends on what my fabric supplier has in stock at the time of your order.
Please note: My artwork is hand-painted and has never been digitially altered in any way - so you might see crooked lines or random specks of color. The colors may also look different on your computer screen than they look in person.
FLANNEL: This is a very lightweight backing option. Blankets with flannel backing are perfect for the summer months or if you live in a warm climate. I have used many different patterns and colors of flannel for the blankets, but I most often use plaid. If you have a specific request (such as floral, a specific color, geometric, etc) please contact me before ordering and I can let you know what is available.
MINKY DOT: This is a soft, velvety fabric that is thicker than the flannel. It has dimples across the length fabric, creating a very pleasing texture. I would consider a minky blanket to be an in-between blanket - good for fall, warm winter climates, or warm-blooded people who don't want to be too bogged down by a heavy blanket. I can do pretty much any color in minky dot. I generally try to stick to neutrals or colors that compliment the colors in the designed front, but if you have a specific request please let me know.
FAUX FUR: This is a warm, plush fabric. It's fur! I usually use minky fur which is velvety and soft. I can also use a Sherpa variety fur, which is very warm and soft and more reminiscent of sheep fur than of, say, bunny fur. Fur backed blankets are great for winter. I have several types of fur that I use. What I have in stock depends on what my fabric supplier has in stock, so not everything you see on my website is necessarily available. Please contact me before ordering if you have something specific in mind.
I recommend washing on delicate cycle in order to prevent color fading and to keep your blanket in tip top shape. If wrinkly, simply throw into the dryer for a quick refresh.
