grumpystitches: Baby quilt custom made. by synnovekri on Flickr.

Soft Cities is a San Francisco-based company that sells blankets and napkins. There's something quite cool about these blankets and napkins. You can custom-print them to feature a street map of your favorite location, like a college campus, hometown, or far-away city. Working with Stamen Design, an award-winning tech-and-map design firm in the Bay area, it uses open-source software to access a kind of "world-wide Wikipedia for maps" and turns it into custom textiles of any neighborhood you want.

Turn an old map into magnets ... what a neat way to learn states and their locations!

This baby tshirt quilt is something I'll definitely do for my little girl. The hard part will be narrowing down which of our favorite outfits will make the cut. This has to be one of the best keepsake ideas ever!

Take the outline of the campus or city/location and decorate it by writing in things you did there over the years.
