HI!
I m expecting any day now!!! So we have invited my mother from India to come here to help us. And when she came she brought lots n lots of handmade baby stuff. Clothes, cotton nappies, knitted sweaters, receiving blankets etc. And all in all available colors: green, red, blue, pink, yellow, white...

So here are some of her handmade receiving blankets. They r all cotton with double layers of cloth. She has used variety of methods: embroidery, needlework, patchwork, fabric painting, etc.

I am advising her to start her own business, may be an online shop like on etsy but she's not so sure...

We both are eager to know your opinion on these blankets. Also let us know what prices will be appropriate for these blankets? Sorry the pics are not that gr8 and haven't ironed all those blankets so the finishing touches are missing.

so here they are:
The first one is handpainted: the name of painting is "warli painting"
 



few more:
Fabric painting




Embroidered receiving blanket



Patchwork




Fabric painting




Plain flanel



let me know wht u all think...

If possible I'll post few of her baby clothes/ sweaters too!!

The embroidery blanket must have taken forever!

I like them, although my favorites are the red one and the pink one (very bright and cheery).

I like the first one the best.  It's a piece that I definitely could not make myself.  It's also original and doesn't have the country cutesy feel that many on craftster like to avoid.
