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!!

They are all wonderful!

The red one is also my favorite. Red is the first color babies can see, so baby will love that one, too!

Those are amazing!  I love the first one and the duckies on the blue one especially.  I'd love to see the rest of what she made too!
