Custom twinkie tush blankets - everything you need to know! :)



We are ready to offer the custom blankets we've talked about!  This blog post will contain all of the info you need to order your custom blankets!

You may order blankets on their own (without diapers) in groups of 3-15 for the time being, on an as available basis.  In the future we will try to open up individual blanket options as well! :)  You may also choose to add blankets (any amount from 1 to 15) to your diaper (Large or Mini!) Group Custom or your twinkie togs group!

We will stock "custom blanket" listings on the store site, under "accessories-blankets".  If you have formed a blanket-only group, simply purchase that listing and email groupcustoms@twinkietush.com with your group spreadsheet (please see below for spreadsheet requirements).  We will then send payment links to other group members, if applicable.  We will plan to re-stock custom blanket listings each week if they sell out in between stockings.

Your blanket-only group order must be communicated to us in the form of a spreadsheet, the same way diaper groups are.  The required information for a blanket-only group is as follows:

1 - Full Member Name
2 - Member Name as it Appears in Paypal
3 - Member Contact Email
4 - Member Paypal Email
5 - Blanket Size preference (28x28", 34x34" or 55x55")
6 - Blanket Backing preference (natural OBV, cv, or solid cotton lycra knit)
*Please note that you may express a group color preference for cv and solid cotton lycra knit which we will honor on an as available basis and only if we feel it works with your print.  We reserve the right to choose another color if we feel it is necessary.  All blankets within a group will be made with the same color cv for members that choose cv.  All blankets within a group will be made with the same color solid cotton lycra knit for members that choose that option.

If you are adding custom blankets to your Large or Mini Group Custom diaper order or your twinkie togs custom group, simply add the above columns #5 and 6 to your existing spreadsheet (they will come after all of the normal preference columns in your spreadsheet).

The cost for custom blankets is as follows:
28x28" : $25
34x34" : $32
55x55": $55

The fabric requirements for custom blankets are as follows:
For each 28x28" blanket: 1 yard
For each 34x34" blanket: 1.5 yards
For each 55x55" blanket: 2 yards *Fabric MUST be 56" wide at a minimum.  Please note that fabric width loss on pre-washing here will result in smaller than 55x55" final size if there is excessive fabric shrinkage.  Cotton lycra is one type of fabric that is likely to shrink and a 58"+ starting width is preferred.

Yardage for groups should be continuous whenever possible.  All blanket fabric will be pre-washed here at our studio before it is cut.

Now some very important notes about fabric that may be used for blankets:

At this point we are willing to work with most fabrics.  We reserve the right to change that without warning, should we experience problems with any type of fabric.  We highly recommend sending in high quality cotton, cotton lycra, or cotton poly blend knits, or thick poly lycra, poly jersey, minky or velour.  We will also make woven blankets if you choose to send in a woven print.  Please remember that a woven fabric is not "cuddly" the same way a knit fabric is, but that doesn't mean it will make a bad blanket - just different. :)  Woven fabrics are almost always 44-45" in width and would therefore NOT work for the larg (55x55") blanket size.  You can feel free to ask about other fabrics by emailing us!

Sometimes fabric that is sent in for group orders contains flaws, printing or otherwise.  We always do our best to spot any flaws and cut around them whenever possible.  However, sometimes flaws are missed.  twinkie tush does not take responsibility for fabric flaws on fabric that has been sent in for group custom orders.

Please let us know if you have any questions by commenting here or by emailing info@twinkietush.com or groupcustoms@twinkietush.com.

Thank you so much! We are looking forward to making tons of beautiful blankets for you! <3
