Cuddlemax began in 2015 when my husband bought me new sewing equipment to help me keep my hands busy while grieving a loss. I made satin-edge baby blankets for all my nieces and nephews, and some friends' babies, too. They quickly became the children's favorite blankie. I even made blankets for the new grandmoms. I was told stories of how much the children loved their blankets, friends sent me pictures and videos of them snuggling, rubbing their fingers on the smooth satin edge as they fell asleep.
I picked up more sewing ideas as the year passed, adding hand towels and aprons to my handmade gifts. A second tragic loss left me wanting nothing more than to be wrapped in a big bear hug. I thought what better way to cuddle up than wrapped in a blanket that actually hugs you? The CuddleMax BearHug Blanket was conceived. Our BearHug blankets were uniquely designed to be worn on your head. Your hands go in the pockets, lift your arms up high and wrap yourself in a big bear hug. Ultimate comfort is key and I love having the hood to keep my neck and head warm on cold nights. I know that no mom is a fan of messes, so to save from having a pile of blankets on the couch, the Cuddlemax BearHug Blanket folds into itself to form a decorative pillow. It's an awesome way to keep a tidy couch and not worry about keeping blankets out-of-sight.
Sewing and making these gifts has made my heart warm and helped my soul find some happiness. I hope to continue making blankets, aprons and diaper cakes with plans to add more personalized products in the future. Sign up for our email list for specials and new items.
