Laura Ashley recently set myself and 14 other bloggers the challenge of coming up with a different idea each for one of their gorgeous throws; they will then write up about it on the Laura Ashley blog :O)
Made from pure cotton with a stripe design, this versatile throw can prove invaluable for the living room, bedroom and beach hut too.
We were sent the Shaldon Stripe Throw which is absolutely gorgeous! I will probably use it mainly as a throw to cover my tatty sofa but for this challenge I left it to little Bugs 😉
I had started to think of things that I could do with it and wanted to include the kids, as this blog is mainly for them I thought it would be fun to do something with them! However I left the throw over the back of the sofa for a few days whilst I was thinking and each day Bugs would come home from nursery and make himself and bunny a little bed on the floor where he would snuggle, play on the iPad and just generally relax after nursery!
I love that he did this and he just looked so adorable and proud of himself that this is what I wanted to share as our use for this throw… Bugs’s snuggle blanket 🙂
My other ideas for using the blanket for kiddie fun were…
- A indoor teddy bear picnic blanket
- The cover for a den
- Daddy suggested a flying carpet (obviously a pretend flying carpet; I’m not that clever)
- A movie blanket
So that’s what we have come up with so far… What would you do with yours?
