It's a Wrap

pucker up!

Rockabye baby, on the treetop. When the wind blows, she’ll freeze her buns off — unless she’s bundled in a Seven Smooches blanket.

Local moms Jennifer List and Stacy Waddington sew the cozy covers from cotton muslin, velour, recycled cashmere, and wool. Animal-themed blankets embellished with hand-embroidered felt critters (sheep, caterpillars, birds, snails) are inspired by classic children’s books. Astrological designs are stitched with images of constellations to mark your babe’s birth date.

With a choice of colors (boy, girl, and neutral) and sizes (mini and stroller), options are many.

And nobody’s left in the cold.
