How to Sew a Weighted Blanket: A New Video


The next time you’d like to catch some serious z’s, snuggle up with a weighted blanket and wake up on the right side of the bed every morning. If you have insomnia or sensory integration issues, a weighted blanket just might be the drug-free sleep aid you’ve been waiting for.

Applied pressure from a heavy blanket throughout the night has a relaxing effect which is soothing and calming. A weighted blanket will relax the nervous system and encourage dopamine and serotonin production, which later converts to melatonin to make you sleepy.

Although these hefty blankets are quite effective in resolving many sleep issues, they can be very expensive to purchase and ship. Making your own will not only save you money but you can also get creative and design a unique blanket with any color or pattern to match your own decor.

The phrase “sleep tight” will have a whole new meaning when you wrap up at night with one of these weighted blankets.

    My Daughter use to have a rough time sleeping; this helped a lot. We used a light natural aquarium gravel (no paint or polish). – My question is, How do you wash this invention? I resorted to a bucket and natural soap. It was very hard to manage. Ideas?

    Or you could just buy an old wool blanket (or two) from the thrift store and put it in between two layers of fabric. Cheaper and more eco friendly. My MIL made these for the kids when they were small. Very warm and heavy.
