"Where flowers bloom so does hope" - Lady Bird Johnson
As many of you know Smitten is based in Texas. Naturally, when began our quest to do a wrap for every US state flower, we started with Texas and the bluebonnet :) We had a contest a while back to design a bluebonnet themed set of stripes, and this is the design Team Smitten chose!
This colorway was designed by on of our fabulous fans and we loved it so much we decided to run it as a limited edition blue bonnets colorway along side our Lady Bird's Blue Bonnets colorway.
One of our fans nominated the colorway to be named after her mother-in-law a Texas native, who not only adored blue bonnets and her home state, but her family and the people of her community. Rhonda was a founder and president of the South Texas Women’s Forum and served on the executive board of the YWCA, where she coordinated many events, including the Yuletide Market and Bayfest Children’s Island. Rhonda succumbed to liver cancer a few years before her first grandchild was born, and she will always be remembered for the ease with which she could turn a stranger into a friend, and for her love and devotion to children.
We are thrilled to be able to name this wrap after this amazing woman, who would have wanted nothing more than to help families hold their babies close!
Tell Me More About This Wrap!
This is a new weave style for Smitten and we are so excited for you to try it out! This weave has the durability of canvas mixed with the flexibility and support of a woven wrap. In order to keep some grip to the wrap we used a textured weft yarn with variations in the thread's thickness. The diagonal stretch has a spring in its step and easily pulls your baby close! Pull-resistant, this weave is going to be your go to for parking lot wrap jobs!
