Lizzie's Baby was started in 2008 by mother and daughter, Liz Lopez and Elizabeth Michelle. They started with making Wella Blankets. Wella blankets were originally made by Lupe Lopez for her first grandchild more than 40 years ago. Every one of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren received several of these amazing blankets over the years. Lupe passed the torch for these great blankets to her daughter-in-law Liz Lopez. She was 95 years old. The name "wella blankets" came from her grandson who started calling her wella when he started to speak. She became known to everyone in the family as wella from that time on. Lizzie's Baby has grown from blankets to other one of a kind items as well.
