The original blanket with outfits that change.
How it works
Made of soft cotton and flannel. Outfits are interchangeable and attach to the doll's underwear via hook and loop fabric (aka velcro, but a super soft version).
Some outfits are included in this campaign, but all outfits sold on paperdollblanket.com also fit this blanket.
Paper Doll Blanket started because Glenn Ann made a baby quilt for her niece. She wanted to make a gift that was extra special. Blankets can be made extra-special through the outfits you choose. Once you give the blanket, you have years to follow up with outfits for different interests and occasions. We have christmas outfits, tooth fairy outfits, princess outfits, back to school outfits, birthday outfits, and many more released all the time.
The very first Paper Doll Blanket was an appliqué baby quilt. After making one for her niece, Glenn Ann made a video that went viral on Facebook, to 9 million people. From that initial exposure, we launched the first Paper Doll Blanket, which remains a hit. It's a treasured customized heirloom quality gift. PD Babies are a new line, that while not a quilt, still have all the same fun and interactivity of the original.
Unlock The Imagination
We're sisters who grew up making things. Our grandmother showed us that simple tasks like baking a pie, writing thank you cards, making a flower bouquet or sewing on a button – were not chores but creations. Life was slowed down and simpler, and every detail was important. This same sensibility comes through in what we make. We have a real passion for design and creativity but also for taking our time to get the details right. With Paper Doll Blanket, we love that it inspires simple, creative, tactile fun.
Make Your Own Outfits
We want to take imaginative tactile play to an even higher level. We want kids and adult makers out there to make their own outfits for Paper Doll Blanket.
We're releasing the dress pattern for our basic a-frame dress. Kids and adults will be able to make their own dresses for their PD Babies. The possibilities are really open to create outfits that reflect the passions and interests of each child.
About Our Production
Paper Doll Blankets were born out of the love of making a quilt for a newborn baby. Glenn Ann handmade the very first blanket for the birth of her niece. We carry that same love and attention into each blanket made.
We’ve been making custom-made Paper Doll Blankets for 2 years and selling them on our website paperdollblanket.com, utilizing production partners in Northern California. This new blanket will leverage existing partnership in California and overseas.

Risks and challenges
We have been making Paper Doll Blankets and selling them on our website for 2 whole years now. We work with a few partners in and out of California for our production. Prior to launching PD Babies we worked to secure manufacturing for the new blanket, leveraging existing partners and relationships.
Manufacturing and production are worked out and we feel very confident about meeting our October ship date. Of course things can always go wrong! We're committed to being 100% transparent and updating our backers immediately of any delays or issues.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
