This is NOT the exact blanket Melissa is looking for, but the pattern is close.
I’m searching for a lost blanket rather than a stuffed animal, and it was handmade, so it would be difficult to find a replacement, but I’m hoping your site may help get this blanket returned.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of it, but it was a double-layer flannel blanket with a white background and a pattern of brightly colored cars, trucks, boats, etc.
It had blue (sort of royal blue) crocheted edging around all 4 sides. It was larger than a typical baby blanket.
This blanket belonged to my son, who has had it since he was a baby and was 7 years old when it was lost. We left it in our hotel room on Tybee Island, GA, in July, 2006. I called the hotel every day for a week and they never found it, but I’m positive we left it in the room. I also called the cleaning service that cleaned that hotel’s linens, but they couldn’t find it either (although they did find another blanket, just not ours).
If I had known that the hotel wouldn’t look for it, we would have turned around and gone back to retrieve it (I called them within 2 hours of when we checked out), but I assumed that they would return something that was clearly of great sentimental value to a child.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
