the big reveal

oobee blankee final prototype!!

the final, final oobee blankee design! i spent so long fiddling with the previous pattern and thought that i'd finally nailed it...

oobee blankee prototype 4

but after making 5 or so with the above pattern, i had to admit that it was difficult to work with and perfect. one night as i lay awake with my pregnancy insomnia, my brain suddenly switched on and i thought of the much easier and streamlined design that you see at the top of the page. it takes larger cuts of fabric to make, which means the price has to go up a smidge, but it's so much easier to work with and, i think, looks just as good, if not better.

i've finally popped some blankees of varying fabrics into my shop
, a few of the new, final design and a couple of the older designs at a slightly lower price. here's the blurb that accompanies them:

the perfect sleep companion for your wee one, the oobee blankee combines sweet designer cotton prints with super soft organic cotton/hemp fleece to create a snuggly security blanket that also doubles as a puppet and good buddy! safe for babies with no loose or removable parts, oobee blankees are sewn with an overlocking stitch to make them super sturdy and able to withstand a whole heap o' love.


  1. They are just so beautiful. What a stunning design, so simple and just gorgeous.

  2. Very nice.
    And the little ones love the taggy bits, like the hands and the ears. Great job!

  3. fantastic - the top one has such great lines....Beautiful and snug I'm sure

  4. Oooh I love them. They are so great - go you. These are perfect. So glad you got to tweak your pattern, these are gorgeous. Your shop is looking very full for someone that has a new bub - well done!

  5. Sooooo cute - can you make one adult-size? It just looks so cozy and comfy!

  6. just darling. wow. glad you got all the kinks out of the design.

  7. Final design wins by far. Congratulations - super cute product!!

  8. These are sooooooo cute!!! Arrhhh!!!

    I also like the more streamlined top latest one. :)

  9. oooh! these are delicious! Might need to get one of the little brock!

  10. I love the new design, as well as the old .. and I can vouch for how SOFT and snuggly they are - they are so beautiful - thankyou for ours Leslie, it is so loved and appreciated .. so much so, it's hard to get a good pic of the wee one cuddling it - he really gets into it, thus mashing the product :)
