Make something that will be a timeless keepsake…
While we all become adults over time, we all love to harken back to our childhood and reminisce of those happy days. So, let’s take some heirloom baby blanket ideas and make some memories for our kids. Thus, in time, they too will reminisce and pull these blankets to show their own kids. Indeed, there is little that I would find as heartwarming as my children telling their children “Look, my Mom made this and now it’s yours”. Truly, a wonderful project can be the bridge that spans generations, or at least one of them. However, there is no reason that these projects should be daunting. Indeed, the hallmark of a true heirloom is that it’s simple, timeless and functional.
