So, I went online to The Company Store and found two full size sheets that I loved---both on sale and in addition, I used a coupon (of course!). One is of multiracial fairies, the other flowers. My mother-in-law made this custom, reversible quilt for my daughter's bed, and is making an identical one for Baby E when she's old enough to be in a "big girl" bed. Benefit: sheets are far less costly than pre-made comforters! (Note: For a standard size twin bed, you will need a larger sheet than a full to make two comforters).
So, if you are frustrated, like me, with the lack of brown girls being represented, take matters into your own hands, pick your fabric, find a willing friend or family member (or pay someone if necessary), and create a one-of-a-kind creation that will comfort him or her night after night.
