Monday Giveaway: Cuddle Ums
Recently, I received a package from Cuddle Ums, an Etsy shop specializing in baby quilts, car seat covers and fabric. This package contained a quilt that just may usurp the place of that receiving blanket. A soft, warm, adorable quilt just the right size for the crib.
This quilt, seen above, is a high quality piece of craftsmanship. I don't know a whole lot about quilting, but I'm pretty sure that it has been machine quilted freehand, and from my experience, that is not an easy feat. This blanket from Cuddle Ums would be an ideal baby gift for a shower, or even for a lap quilt for watching TV. There are a variety of colors and fabrics.
My favorite part about the quilt is the minky. If you are not familiar with minky, you should get familiar. It is softer and smoother than fleece and almost just as warm. It's one of those fabrics that you can't help but touch, and once you do, you can't take your hands off of it. Just perfect for a little baby to soothe itself to sleep.
Cuddle Ums also offers adorable car seat covers and receiving blankets and a variety of adorable fabric, all at reasonable prices.
Cuddle Ums has generously offered one of my readers a $40 gift certificate to her shop!
TO ENTER: Hop over to Cuddle Ums and check out the shop. Come back and tell me what you would spend the $40 if you win. Please leave your email in your comment. If I can't contact you, you can't win.
