CLOSED Sew out of the Ordinary Review&Giveaway

CLOSEDThe first time I saw Karen's shop, Sew out of the Ordinary, I was amazed by how cute her products we're. She makes beautiful personalized items for babies and children. The shop offers blankets, loveys, burp clothes, onesies, and tooth fairy pillows. I am also quite fond of the name!

I am usually not impressed with baby blankets. I received about 20 of them for my baby shower. I have 2 dresser drawers full of blankets. Most of them haven't been touched, I just didn't really like them. If I would have gotten a blanket or two from Sew out of the Ordinary, I think I would have felt differently. These blankets are seriously gorgeous and look so well made! They are definitely not your average baby blanket. They are available in 3 sizes: Lovey, Stroller Size or Big Kid Size. You can get a beautiful and soft minky blanket or a minky/cotton combo. The lovey we own is minky and satin.
The blankets aren't just beautiful and soft though; they also come in adorable prints, are high quality, and can be monogrammed (7 fonts to choose from). I truly think these blankets would make a great baby shower present for any expecting mommy!

Our lovey is wonderful. I love the minky print, it is perfect for us. Minky anything makes my heart pitter patter. When I first opened the package my initial reaction was to rub it against my face, it is THAT soft. The green satin side compliments the minky print well, and is soft itself. It has a little loop to make it easy to carry. I like to bring it in the car seat with us to give Brexton something to play with. Brexton has never been one for loveys, and that hasn't changed, but it does seem to entertain him! He likes to play with the loop, and when he is trying to be cute he snuggles with it. It really is beautiful too! I wish I would have had one when Brex was a newborn, I think it would have made a great photo prop too.
