For those of you that don’t know me- I thought that a short video might help relay the motivation for making these blankets. Thanks. -Summer
In June of 2016, our baby Breelyn unexpectedly died. When we were able to see her at the hospital, she had been covered in a hand made blanket. Seeing that blanket let us know that others didn’t see her as just a number or a chart, she was a baby and she mattered.
We want to give that moment of love to other families who have lost their children. Making an entire blanket is a daunting task and 5″ x 5″ squares are much easier to commit to. I’m twelve squares in and I only learned to crochet a month ago. Anyone can learn- my first grade niece is a pro! I encourage you to try making some squares. Crochet, knit, quilt- whatever works for you! Goal is approximately 30″ x 40″ blankets (48 – 5″ squares). Gender neutral colors are probably best – green, yellow, purple, etc.
Make a blanket or make a square – let’s show others that we care. Join Breelyn’s Blanket Brigade today!
