My First EVER Giveaway! Plus, review of The Pink Polka Dot Boutique!


Hi everyone!

I'm so pleased to announce that I've teamed up with an Etsy shop, The Pink Polka Dot Boutique, to do a review on one of her fabulous blankets and offer another as a giveaway!  Thank you so much for sponsoring this fantastic giveaway and providing a blanket for review!

The Pink Polka Dot Boutique is run by Christine, a stay at home Mom, and has a lot of different items for sale including crocheted hats, nursing pillows and covers, burp cloths, blankets, and bibs.  She uses many different colors and prints for most of her items, all of which are adorable!  She's sold over 2100 items and has great feedback, too!  Check out what she has for sale- there is really some great stuff!  Use the coupon code MEMORIALDAY to receive 15% off!

I was sent one of the double sided flannel baby/kids blanket for review.  Here's what she says about these blankets in one of her Etsy listings:
"Each blanket is double sided in fabulous quality Flannel Fabric.  It is very soft.  Machine and Dryer safe.

The dimensions are approximately: 35 inches long by 22 inches wide.  It is stitched double with a seam on both the inside and the outside all the way around."
I think that anyone would be pleased with this blanket!  It is really soft.  This blanket has a really fun bike print on one side, and a blue and yellow polka dot print on the other.  I love the bike print!  I actually used a cut of this fabric to make my own baby wipes!   The approximate dimensions that are listed are very close to the actual measurements of this blanket.  The length is basically right on- 35", and the width is just slightly narrower at about 20".  The blanket is zig zag stitched around the outside edge with a coordinating yellow thread.

This blanket would be perfect for a bassinet or cradle (as long as the baby is very young and can't put it over their face as a SIDS risk).  It would also be perfect to tuck around a baby in an infant car seat for a little added warmth.  You could use it in a crib, as well, but it may be a tad small for a wiggly toddler at night.  It would be a nice sized security blanket!

And now, since you're all convinced how wonderful this blanket is, the Pink Polka Dot Boutique is generously going to give one of you a blanket of your choice!

    I wish I would have known about Pink Polka Dot Boutique when DD was expecting! I love the burp cloths and you can just never get too many of those.
