At one time some one had described or posted a link on how to make a weighted blanket. I tried using the search but couldn't find the post. Does anyone remember the post or know the link? Thanks for your help.

This is the pattern I followed to make my ds a weighted blanket. He needs a new one and I'll be making another quite soon. It was simple enough and he really likes his special covers!

This is a link to Dreamcatchers weighted blanket. They are a great company that makes completely machine washable weighted blankets to your specifications. There is a lot of information on their site. They have thousands of fabric choices or you can order one of several beautiful colors that are pre-made. We recently purchased one and I'm very happy with the quality. It is helping our son sleep better and to calm him during the day. We ordered a pre-made. I washed it with fabric softener because it was a bit stiff in its newness, which bothered my son. He is happy with it once washed. :)

Thank you for the information on making a weighted blanket. My mom and I made one for my son over Christmas break and he loves it.
