A vintage blanket on Cameron's keepsake.
A couple of weeks ago, I received a request for a keepsake that a mother wanted to gift to her daughter for her 24th birthday. The mom wanted to send me a small piece of her daughter Cameron's baby blanket, which Cameron still had because she loves it so much. Cameron didn't know about the small piece of that blanket that her mom had kept, and that is what her mom wanted me to use for her custom keepsake gift. I couldn't believe what I was reading. This was the sweetest thing and the ideal gift for Cameron. I could not wait to receive the swatch!
Meanwhile, I drew Cameron's custom illustration inspired by photos of her that her mom sent me, and a couple of days later, I got the small piece of blanket. It was just enough, a beautiful vintage piece of a frail fabric. I went out and got a soft charmeuse and tulle to maybe complement the blanket swatch, and I started working.
