Obsessed: Hand-Printed swaddle blankets

Sweet Petite Swaddle blanket

A friend of mine from high school (actually we went to elementary school together!) just opened this Etsy shop The Sweet Petite and it’s fabulous. And for $15 these beauties are too good to pass up!

Well that and the fact I’m pregnant. (almost 15 weeks)

I love how gender neutral the patterns are. And I adore black and white! I just ordered the arrow one. I’m going to keep it for myself because I’m selfish, but also I think it’s the perfect gift. Because even if I don’t have time to hand make a gift, I still love giving something that’s handmade. So be sure to check out The Sweet Petite!

P.s. There are some great DIYs for swaddle blankets, like from my girl Mer Mag, but sometimes you just want to buy something. RIGHT?

As a fun litte side note, my friend Vanessa who started the store is also the very woman that I was an accidental bridesmaid with at close friend’s wedding. More on that here. Ah! Good times.

Love you all!
