Weighty matters

I have mentioned before that I have two kids who are on the spectrum. Well the eldest one has a lot of trouble sleeping as part of having ASD. She has trouble winding down, falling asleep and staying asleep. The Occupational Therapist recommended for her a weighted blanket. I looked online for them, and they were so expensive for what they were! And they weren't very pretty either.

Well no girl of mine was going to have an ugly weighted blanket. I was able to purchase some charm squares from my favorite fabric supplier, (on special mind!) and found plastic pellets in my local Spotlight store and made up my own weighted blanket.
