Sea Bear Baby Blanket


Sea Bear Baby Blanket

“Sea Bear Baby Blanket” by Julie Anderson


A two-fee gift for your favorite little one. Bear and Blankie wrapped up in one adorable knit from designer Julie Anderson and inspired by the sea life in the Channel Islands near her southern California home.

From Beth:

Sunny Southern California is home to the magical Channel Islands National Park. The park includes five of the eight Channel Islands. Because it is only accessible by boat or small plane, it is the least visited of all our national parks. It’s well worth the effort, though, with opportunities to watch whales, elephant seals and California sea lions up close and personal.

Little ones need their bears and blankies. Clever California designer Julie Anderson has combined them into one fantastic gift for a baby or lucky toddler. Knit in organic worsted cotton with an ocean inspired wavy edging, this “sea bear” is a happy addition to any nursery.
