This blanket wasn't meant to be such a monstrosity, but it came out that way. Beware the visual onslaught:



It is baby-sized and for a local emergency shelter.

Thanks for looking!

I agree with battikins.  It's a cute blanket, and I'm sure it'll mean a lot to whomever needs it.  Kudos for being such a sweetie.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

Thanks y'all.  I have a policy where I don't donate things that aren't made well and yall are helping me feel more confident about sending this in. It's high quality, I just wasn't so sure about the color combos.

Thanks again!

I llike the colors. It's soft and muted mostly with some pops of red for interest. What's not to like? I like baby things that aren't just pink, blue or yellow.

It's a little more aggressive in person. I guess the clash is the main thing.



The natural-light photography makes it appear a little more muted than it is. 

I agree with you on the pastel monopoly on baby things, so I'm glad you see it that way rather than as a circus clown outfit, haha.

I'm sure they'll love it, and babies like bright colors more, because they attract the baby's attention Grin
