Description

This fidget lap quilt has many uses and many names. The sensory fiddle items are for calming, comforting, stimulating, occupying and distracting for people who have dementia, Alzheimer’s, ADHD or other sensory issues. On top of this they also help maintain fine motor skills and can give the person a meaningful activity to engage in. They can occupy the person for a long time, keep their hands busy and settle them when they are restless. The lap blankets are also good for people with anxiety and autism.
This blanket has lots of activities, pockets, noises, textures and poppers. It also has some tactile elements which can help calm a person.
The blanket has a lovely brightly coloured backing to give additional colour stimulation which helps calm and soothe and also provides another texture.
Can be machine washed inside a pillow case on a cool wash.
Although every care has been given to attaching the elements this quilt would not be suitable for a very young child due to the small parts.

I currently live in beautiful Wales in a little village. I have 4 dogs and enjoy walking in the thousands of acres of forestry land that surrounds my home. I started sewing as a hobby and am totally self taught. I began by making bags from old denim jeans and have progressed slowly into other items and repurposing other items of clothing and soft furnishings. I have learnt many tips and new techniques by watch tutorials on YouTube. I soon had made lots of items so tried selling them at a local craft fair and to my surprise they sold and I had lots of compliments and my confidence has grown. I am now hoping to sell to a wider audience by opening a nuMonday shop.

All the items in my shop are made by me, are totally unique and are made from recycled fabrics.
