I even asked the lady in the sewing department if a blanket made out of these materials could withstand a puppy. She was positive that it would work well. (Plus, 100% cotton will wash so much easier than a poly-blend.)
I sure hope we get to meet our new pup soon! We are all so ready!
*I wing/wang/wung the style of the blanket in my head, and I am so happy how it turned out. I am sure people are making blankets just like this all over the world-- I just haven't checked because this particular blanket was designed in my head. If you would like a tutorial, let me know!*
