Myra, of HerbanLuxe, has organized yet another team project for the members of Team EcoEtsy – a mass donation of handmade baby blankets for a non-profit organization called Enchanted Makeovers.

According to Myra: “Enchanted Makeovers goes around several states making over family shelters. They have several on-going projects and are always in need of supplies – right now they are in need of handmade baby quilts.”

From the Enchanted Makeovers website: “Since 2007, Enchanted Makeovers’ mission has been to transform homeless shelters for women and children into places that inspire behavioral and psychological change. Through our various projects, mentoring programs and makeovers of the physical space, women and children are introduced to a way of thinking that helps to shift their outlook about their lives and possibilities for the future.” [Learn more…]

fleece and cotton baby blanket by LindaEve

This is my contribution to the team project – a simple design, nice for a boy or a girl, and very cuddle-worthy. I pieced together 36 squares of green and lavender polar fleece, then backed it with a nice grey cotton sheet. It looks quilted, but there is no batting between the two layers. Even with no batting, this blanket provides lots of warmth (perhaps the current heat wave kept me from wanting to make it too warm).

I would love to see what my EcoEtsy teammates have come up with. Pictures please??

Stay cool…
