Get Wrapped Up in A Story
Once upon a time, artists Jen List and Stacy Waddington stumbled upon a heap of unwanted sweaters and shirts. Finding their inspiration in the bright colors and soft textures of their retired materials, the pair decided to spin a yarn of their own by transforming the old fabrics into a line of new, snuggly, imaginative children's toys and accessories that encourage early learning and individual expression through creative design, wonder, and storytelling.
These extra-soft blankets give your little bookworm an early introduction to the iconic children's stories The Three Little Pigs, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. These huggable classics' eponymous characters are represented in vibrant hand-felted swirls, making even the Big Bad Wolf cuddly. The double-sided blanket is just the right size to tuck your tot into their stroller and is made out of layers of 100% cotton muslin, velvety 100% cotton velour, and corresponding strips of cozy repurposed wool and cashmere sweaters. Handmade in Flossmoor, Illinois.

Jen List & Stacy Waddington
Jennifer & Stacy met as preschool room mothers, sharing a love of children & artistic expression. With backgrounds in graphic arts & fashion merchandising, they were always looking for ways to share their creativity -- beyond the 4-year old audience -- and before long, seven smooches was born.
Working with little more than a sewing machine & bags of unwanted wool sweaters, the gorgeous tiny cardigans, hats, mittens & kimonos came to be. Upon the discovery of needle felting, cotton blankets were adorned with felty little animals & stars and beautiful handmade wool felt emerged as warm, comfy slippers.
Surrounded by the love & support of their husbands & families, as well as piles & piles of wool, Jen & Stacy hope you can share in some of the magic that has become... collection
