O.B. Designs Baby Toys - Plush Toys - Crochet Blankets Ethically Made
Crochet Baby Blanket | Handmade | OB Designs
This beautiful handmade Crochet Baby Blanket has been handcrafted by artisans using a technique called crochet. It is a process of creating fabric by interlocking loops of yarn, thread, or strands of other materials using a crochet hook. The name is derived from the French term crochet, meaning 'small hook'.
This high-quality crochet baby blanket comes in five colours: Cinnamon, Vanilla, Turmeric, Peach, & Sage.
Mothers have been wrapping their newborn babies in cloths to make them warm & comfortable for thousands of years. Modern babies are no different. They still love to be wrapped up tightly in a baby blanket to mimic their mother's womb. By choosing to buy a crochet baby blanket, you are choosing
the tradition of the old world into the new.
This is a classic that will withstand the test of time. It is that "special" baby blanket that goes in the memory box of your child's life. This baby crochet blanket is versatile. It can be used as a swaddle because it stretches, as a pram blanket, a cot blanket & an all-important security baby blanket.

What OB Designs Baby Toys are all about
- all our products are created with children’s needs being a priority
- it is also paramount that all our fabrics are soft and tactile, designed to soothe and comfort.
- crochet blankets capture this, being hand-made and from 100% natural materials
Starting from humble beginnings selling hand-made teething rattles at the Byron local artisan markets in 2008, O.B designs has grown to produce an extensive range of nursery toys and décor now sold internationally. The core values and ethos of O.B designs, however, are still unchanged. Now with three beautiful children, and my husband being a primary school teacher, all our products are created with children’s needs being a priority. Our toys and crochet come from a place of love. The design process is initiated by thinking about who it is for and what they need and we then work back from there.
It is also paramount that all our fabrics are soft and tactile, designed to soothe and comfort. The crochet blankets capture this, being hand-made and from 100% natural materials. Likewise, we are committed to creating products that are ethical and sustainable. All the packaging is compostable, made from cotton, and recycled cardboard while our toy manufacturer is Sedex accredited. This means they are a proven ethical business, from employee wages, work health safety to environmental impact.
The latest challenge at OB designs? To create products that can make the world a better place. We are currently developing a range of soft toys where a portion of sales is donated to the Kenyan Charity Rafiki Mwema, which cares for vulnerable children. Our aim with every toy sold is to help pay for their housing, where they are rehabilitated and loved, as well as donating a soft toy for each child. We are also committed to donating toys to Foster Children in our local region in the Northern Rivers.
We hope you enjoy the products as much as we love creating them.
