A McKinney woman has started a business after solving her own problem.
The invention was born when Amy Long realized she didn’t have enough hands.
“I was actually walking through a parking lot with a child on either side and my baby in a sling and my blanket fell off,” she said.
Long solved the problem by creating a blanket with clips on each corner, and after one trip to a store, she knew she was onto something.
“I was stopped by four separate people at one time who said, ‘Where did you get that?’ ‘I made it.’ ‘Will you make one for me?’” she said.
After a lot of experimenting, the Secure2me baby blanket was born.
“We went through a lot of different shapes and sizes,” Long said.
Mothers from as far away as Australia and England started snapping them up off Long’s Web site.
“It’s one of those things that you go, ‘It’s brilliant! Why didn’t we think of that ages ago?,’” mother Heidi Thaden Pierce said.
