The inspiration behind this blanket came because a sweet friend of mine is expecting her 2nd little boy 🥰 She told me that she was planning on decorating the boys room in a car theme. That’s all I needed to know

I figured that this would be a blanket that would grow with him and make a neat keepsake.

Of course, I wasn’t thinking and her other little boy, who is 3, absolutely loved it! He was wanting it, so I’m working on making a smaller version for him that he can carry around because I know that he has a small green blanket that he carries a lot.

    1. I’m thinking about probably doing it square in shape and no grey road through it just a grey border and arranging the cars over it in different spots. I’ll probably take pics of it and post it when I finish 🙂
