Fresh 1 Blankies Review & Giveaway

Pin on PinterestShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterEmail this to someone
So many times I have stumbled across postings on facebook and even on craigslist with a picture of a baby blanket and a caption reading something like “Do you know where I can buy/find this exact blanket?”  Usually it is because a child has become attached to a specific blankie and somehow it has gotten misplaced or left behind or it is simply falling apart from so much wear and tear.  What if you could have 4 of the exact same blankie at an affordable price so this wouldn’t even have to be a concern?  Well thanks to WAHM Jessica Welch you can!
While pregnant with her first child Jessica was given the advice to purchase multiple identical snuggly blankets for her daughter, but she soon realized just how expensive this could be.  Instead she sewed her daughter several small blankies and each time one would get dirty she would say “let’s get a fresh one” as her daughter got older she began asking for a “fresh one” when she felt her current blankie was dirty.  After the birth of her second child Jessica decided to share the “fresh one” idea with everyone and so Fresh 1 Blankies was born!  Now every mom can have access to soft, durable, luxurious, and AFFORDABLE blankies too.
I was super excited when Jessica offered to send Sugar her very own 4 pack of Fresh 1 Blankies – we picked the pink paisley puppy pattern.  So what exactly makes Fresh 1 Blankies different from the rest?  You already know that these are sold in packs of 4 which allows you to implement the “fresh one” system if you are a SAHM, but I also love that with four one could be kept at home, one could be left at daycare, one could be kept in the diaper bag, and one could be left in the car….. now no worries if you will have your little ones special blankie!  
The construction of these blankies are awesome.  Each blankie is 15″ x 15″ with one side of cuddly minky and the opposite side silky satin.  As you can see in the picture the sewing is impeccable with nice straight, even, strong seams.  The secret to the Fresh 1 Blankie lies in the stitch.  The two layers of fabric are quilted together with a layer of interfacing in between.  This means the fabric will not separate and there will be no light weight satin clinging to baby’s face.  Fresh 1 Blankies are designed to be a solid blanket that will last through all the drooling, biting, crying, spit ups, sniffles, and rough play that will come in the years ahead.
When you receive your Fresh 1 Blankies they will seem a bit stiff, but after one wash and a tumble dry Sugar’s blankies were snuggly soft.  My suggestion is to purchase Fresh 1 Blankies before your precious lil one even arrives this way you can offer them right away.  Sugar hasn’t developed an attachment to hers and I think it is because she didn’t receive them til she was about 9 months old.  Plus the silky satin is very comforting to rub against the cheek of your newborn to comfort them – take one in your hospital bag!  Fresh 1 Blankies has also started selling blankies individually now too, so if your little one is a bit older you could purchase one and see how they like their new blankie and always purchase more later.  
Sets of 4 can be purchased for $39.95 or an individual blankie for $10.95.  I absolutely love the Fresh 1 Blankie concept and hope you take a moment to check them out!  Jessica has also very generously offered my readers a giveaway.
