Cuddly Inspiration…

June 15, 2018- By now I’m sure you’ve seen a few of the gorgeous blankets that we are offering in our current product line, but if not, here’s a link to our online Etsy Shop https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/BronxBabyDesigns?ref=search_shop_redirect.

I wanted to touch on where inspiration comes from when we are picking out materials for our blankets and how we choose designs. Cathy is our chief blanket maker, and thankfully, she never has a shortage of new and imaginative ideas! She gets some of her inspiration from the web of course, but most of the time, she has an idea in her mind’s eye that she’s so skillfully able to bring to life. For the black and white chevron blanket for example, as soon as she saw the yarn, she immediately knew that she wanted to do a bold pattern and that’s how the blanket was born.

I hand pick all of our yarn and try to focus on soft, beautiful colours that will look great in every home. It is imperative that all of the materials we use are machine washable and dryable because we know how busy you are.  I like things that are modern yet classic, and velvety textures are never a question! I choose high-quality fabrics that will stand up to whatever your life as a mom or dad has in store. All of our baby blankets are designed to be as unique as your child. Thank you for supporting our work, and the work of makers everywhere.

Meet Your Makers (Meet OUR makers actually!)

June 6, 2018– Our makers are real people. They’re grandmas and students, and artists and crafters. Some of them have government jobs, and others make and design crafts full-time. The point is, they all have differences, but they all have one thing in common; they love to create.

Cathy- She is the creator of all of our lovely, beautifully soft blankets that come in a variety of patterns and colours. Cathy is mother to three grown children and grandmother to two grandchildren. She has been knitting and crocheting for at least 20 years, and the thing she loves most about creating blankets for our line is that she gets to see new babies and mommies cuddling in her creations. Cathy is from Mount Hope.

Jane- She is the creator of our gorgeous and unique crocheted animals. I was lucky enough to meet Jane at a craft show, and we’ve never looked back! She is my go-to lady for all things fun! She’s created an Octopus, Unicorn, Owl, Penguin, Hedgehog, among many other fantastic characters. She has a knack for bringing animals to life with her expertise and craftsmanship.  Jane is from Caledonia.

Erin- She is the creator of some of our fabulous 8×10 watercolours and stunning greeting cards. Erin is a student at Sheridan College in the illustration and design program. She has created so many unique pieces for Bronxbaby Designs some of which include Lemurs, Scottie Dogs, Landscapes, and other animals. Erin is from Mississauga.

There are more makers in our line-up; Stay tuned for more info on our additional talent!
