If you're looking for the perfect, unique gift for a baby shower, your niece/nephew, or your own little one, I have the perfect online shop for you.
My friend Kim has been making these adorable little "silky's" as we call them, for years now. When our mutual friend, Alex had her first son he absolutely adored these small, cozy blankets. They're a perfect size for snuggling in the car seat, or providing comfort at bedtime and while nursing.
Each blanket is handmade with love. Kim is always so helpful, and will send samples of the various fabrics she has, and ideas of how to mix and match them. Typically, one side is a silky, satin material and the other side has soft, minky fabric and it's finished with a coordinating satin edge. For one of my sister's blankets, I used the soft minky on both sides with a satin edge, and Phillip loves it just as much. Kim will work with you and make whatever works best for your little one!
Since my friend Alex's kids loved their silky's so much, I knew it would be the perfect gift for my sister when she was expecting. Before Phillip was born, and we didn't know the sex, I ordered the cutest yellow and grey silky to match the nursery. Since he loved it so much right from the beginning, I knew I needed to order a few more so my sister didn't have to constantly be washing the same one.
This time, I had two made. One with "Phillip" embroidered on one side, and a fun pattern on the other. The other one, I can't believe I'm admitting this, was a Dodger theme silky because my sister and her husband are die hard fans. It has "#1 Dodger Fan" embroidered on it, with grey minky on one side, and a dodger blue chevron print minky on the other. Clearly, this was my brother in law's favorite!
|Here are some examples of the silky's Kim has made (there are more online). The bottom left purple silky was for my friend Alex's daughter, she has a lot of cute fabrics for girls! The other three shown are the ones I had made for Phillip.|

The quality of these silky's is really top notch! The silky pictured in this post is one I had made for my friend Laura. They're always a huge hit with both mommy's and kiddos! If you're looking for that perfect gift, this soft, comforting blanket is just that. And best of all, it can be customized for the little one in your life!
Silky, Lovey, Blankie...whatever your little one affectionately calls it, this will be a perfect addition to their collection. Be sure to check out Kim's Facebook Page, at Kenyon Kreations. In addition to these cute little silky's, Kim also makes customized shirts, onsies, and larger blankets!

PS...I wasn't compensated for this post. I just really love the Silky's from Kenyon Kreations and I wanted to share it with you :)
