Blanket of Earth?
November 28, 2013 7:59 PM   Subscribe

Tonight my 8 year old niece told me that for Christmas she wants a blanket for her bed that has a giant picture of Earth on it. I asked her if she saw this somewhere, and she told me that she just thought about how cool it would be in her own head. I tried doing a Google search, but I'm having no luck. Anyone have an idea of where I might find such a thing? Thanks!

Lots of photo processors will make a blanket with a photo on it, for example, Walmart Digital Photo Center. NASA photos are largely in the public domain, so I'd think this would be very doable.

Looking again, the ones I linked to might not be the right size, so please check. The description says that the blanket is 60 inches long. Twin and full beds are 75 inches long, and queen and king beds are even longer.

This might be a better length.

Also, you can order custom blankets made from any photo.
