A baby on the way is one of the most exciting gifts life gives us. Whether it is a close relative, a friend, or a friend of a friend, the excitement is all the same. One of the most stressful parts about a baby coming? What you get them as a gift! No one wants to bring a duplicate gift to the baby shower. People love to gift babies with items they will love and remember their whole lives, something they only get once. Luckily, Papilio Prints offers the perfect, one-of-a-kind gift for the babies in your life, custom baby blankets!
Custom baby blankets are the perfect gift to give your new, special loved one. Follow along for advice from our fabric professionals to learn more about the best fabrics and custom designs to use for your beautiful gift!
Cotton is the most popular choice when creating or purchasing baby blankets, and for a good reason! Cotton fabric is absorbent, perfect for spills. It is also very soft and gentle against a baby’s skin. Organic cotton tends to be best for babies, as it eliminates any chemicals or fertilizer from the cotton. Babies have susceptible skin that can be aggravated easily, so that synthetic fabrics can irritate them.
Cotton is the perfect fabric to use when making your custom baby blanket. The most popular form is double gauze, which is simply two layers of gauze fabric sewn together. This fabric is incredibly light, airy, and breathable. It is incredibly soft and allows for vibrant, beautiful prints.
Cotton jersey knit is another excellent choice for a baby lighter blanket fabric. It is highly breathable, soft, and stretchable, three things that are necessary when it comes to children. This fabric resists pilling, which will allow your blanket to last much longer than other fabrics!
Rayon is a great choice of fabric to use for your custom baby blanket. It is incredibly durable but remains soft. For babies with sensitive skin, this fabric is for you! Rayon has the ability to adjust the temperature, so your baby will not overheat.
