Earlier this month we talked about Designing For Children With Autism, and several readers stressed the importance of addressing a child's sensory needs. Weighted blankets can be incredibly effective but aren't always the cutest.

Mama Pickles over at The Squishy Pickles was disappointed to learn that a weighted blanket from a therapy catalog would cost her a small fortune and there was no weighted option in the Pottery Barn Kids collection that she loved. So she made one from scratch for her sensory kid, then she posted a tutorial. Check it out right here.

Thanks, Mama!
