My daughter'??s pink puppy has been loved so much it should now be called gray puppy. She'??s had it since the day after she was born. Part blanket, park stuffed toy, she used to lie on it and now she cuddles with it. She brought it with her to the ER once for comfort, and it's dried several tears. There'??s nothing like the soft touch of a blanket love, whether it'??s called woobie or shmoopie or simply pink puppy.
The cutest name in the world for the softest blankets in the world, myubby allows you to build a blanket and create a smile.
Here'??s how it started. When the creators'?? of myubby'??s first child was born, they created a one-of-a-kind baby blanket on an old hand-me-down sewing machine. Their little son named the handmade blanket '??ubby.'? A second child came along and so did another '??ubby.'? They gathered that '??ubby'? is actually cutie-pie speak for '??friend.'?
Now you can make yourubby or yourfriendsubby at myubby in minutes. You can choose from over 50 fabrics, 12 satin edge color options or serge finish, three sizes and up to 54 characters of embroidery personalization.

Building your blanket is as comfortable as the blankets are themselves, with a user-friendly five step process. Step 1 is to find the right size for whatever occasion'??there'??s an itty bitty size 15"x15'? (a baby lovey dovey perhaps), the original 35'?x45'? or the biggie 50'?x60'? (this is a fantastic size for adults to cuddle on the couch under...trust me). Then you can choose to create a one or two-sided ubby, along with the fabric for each side. What'??s your fancy? Double fluffy, fleece, swirly (my favorite'?¦so soft) design fluffy, smoothy, bubbly? Each fabric comes in a wide range of lovely colors and/or patterns for any dÃ©cor. Wrap things up by choosing an edging (the satin is lovely, by the way).
Now here's the special part. You can decide if you want it monogrammed or with an inscription. That'??s what makes this a unique blanket. It'??s not just initials'?¦it could be a date or a phrase. Perfect for things like wedding anniversaries, going away gifts, baby showers, just because I love you, etc.
The colors are so bright and the fabrics so touchable, myubby will surely become a treasure in your household. But with how much this blanket will be loved, might I suggest one thing. Save yourself some time. Just go ahead and choose gray.
Myubby blankets are available at Myubby.com. Prices are based on size, fabric and personalization, from $22-$98.
