“I’m a sissy so you don’t have to be” really comes into play with this cuddle kit from the sissy line. Like linus from “peanuts” with his blanket, i wanted to provide the same security to my grandchildren for when they were “home sick” from school, or, just “homesick” when away on an overnighter – such as grandma’s house or even just a visit to a non-custodial parent. Hand-crocheted using yarns of various origins, softness, heights, weights, etc. This blanket becomes a work of art before it ever gets used. I create the design – you choose the color palette. I sometimes add an additional color or two for impact on the design. You may instruct me not to use a specific color. You can choose an actual color scheme or something more general, such as “primary colors” or “soft pastels”. “No two sissys are alike”. The pillow is 14″ x 14″ square with a smoother back. The blanket is approximately 3′ x 4′. The blanket is meant to be held and cuddled, not used as a coverup or a “sleeping blanket”. This is a custom-ordered item and takes 6 to 8 weeks for completion. This item is for those who believe in living (and raising their children and grandchildren), in a more “natural” and less-sterile environment, and who are alarmed by the explosion of childhood allergies and asthma, and have read or heard about the studies where kids raised on farms and exposed to dirt and the environment early have healthier immune systems than children raised in the city or highly controlled environments. Allow your children to drag this kit from home to home, in the car, on vacation, past the dog. And seldom wash it. (it won’t “smell like home” if you keep it in pristine condition). The sissy line of products is not for those who have already experienced sensitivities to environmental allergens or certain fibers.
This afghan is the custom pony blanket we made for our daughter. Her name is josie, so their is a j on the hindquarters. This could be changed along with any custom color changes. It is backed in an ultra cuddle fabric which could be custom fleece, flannel, or ultra cuddle. Any other questions just ask.
