I really love the simplicity of Swiss Design. Our Crosses Blanket was inspired by the Swiss Army blankets that I’ve loved for so long. The durability and the timelessness really are a great baby gift for the modern baby. This blanket was also inspired by my love for A Merry Mishap and her aesthetic. I’m always smitten by her black and white homescapes.

Our dear friend Traci from 45Wall Design so generously partnered with us on this giveaway! Her crosses pocket jotter, notecards and the Mumford and Sons inspired poster are such a great compliment to our baby blanket. She lovingly screen prints all of her posters by hand. If you haven’t seen her Instagram feed, it’s filled with inspiring images of her daily life!

FreshlyPicked

 

We are excited to start our 8 Weeks of Handcrafted for Life Giveaway. Handcrafted for Life™ means that our baby blankets are made with the utmost respect for the PLANET and the PEOPLE. All of EllieFunDay’s organic baby blankets are handcrafted by marginalized women in India. Each baby blanket purchased provides a fair wage and a dignified living for a disenfranchised woman.  We do our best to source responsibly and to be mindful of our planet. That is why our mantra is to buy less, buy better.

Each of our organic baby blankets feature 4 layers of organic cotton muslin that is super soft upon the touch and is perfect for baby’s delicate skin. Breathability, washability and durability are of utmost importance to us. Our blankets have been road tested by the best of the best…that means moms and kiddos alike!

We’ve partnered with our favorite makers in the industry to bring you 8 Weeks of Handcrafted for Life Giveaway! Every Monday, for 8 weeks we are giving away a goodie from one of our favorite makers alongside of one of our blankets.

Today we are giving away one of our FOX & FOREST Organic Baby Blanket with a pair of Freshly Picked Moccasins!

FREE ADVENT CALENDAR PRINTABLE DIY

Don’t you love the anticipation of Christmas? Advent is a preparatory season leading up to this celebrated day. It has significance because it is a season of looking forward and waiting for something greater; both for the annual celebration of the event of Christ’s birth, and for the time when Christ will come again. This advent calendar is a great way to bring meaning into your holiday season in the midst of the hustle and bustle. Many of these activities are great with family and friends. We’ll be uploading some pics/videos of us doing some seriously silly things, so look out for some more inspiration!

Highlights of Activities:

• Decorate gingerbread men to look like members of your family

• Make a snow globe for a place you would love to visit one day.

• Wrap your gifts with recycled goods and found objects.

Go here to download our FREE Advent Calendar here.

SUPPLIES:

• scissors

• glue

• glue gun or strong adhesive

• foam board 19” x 30”

• paper

• 25 — 1.75” mini-wooden clothespins

• fabric to cover board (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

1.} Set your printer to “no bleeds” and print all pages (if you don’t have this function, print it at 80% so that text doesn’t get cut off)

2.} CUT on the SOLID lines and FOLD on the DOTTED LINES

3.} Glue the two sides of the cards together

4.} Optional: glue fabric to cover foam board

5.} Hot glue the clothes pins (see diagram) leaving approximately 2.5” between the bottom of the first  clothes pin to the top of the next row and 2.5” between  each clothespin

6.} Pin the cards starting with 2.5’ at the top.

7.} Starting Dec. 1st flip the card labelled ‘1 ’ over and do an activity! Follow each card subsequently.

Enjoy! *EXTRAS*
