My mom had a brilliant idea of how to use the fabric left over from the baby blankets: burp cloths. Think people would be interested in buying a matching flannel blanket/burp cloth set? Or do you think it would be better to sell everything separately?

Having crafty skills -- along with that deliciously compelling Catholic guilt -- means that whenever an acquaintance is with child, I feel the need to offer the new little one a homemade gift. Sort of a welcome-to-earth-it's-really-not-so-bad present for Baby's Big Entrance.
After spending hours on single knitting projects for baby toys, I was relieved when my Fairy Godmother taught me a fast, easy blanket pattern. I've made three so far, and I love picking alternative, boho fabric combos, because I absolutely detest the cutesy "baby" patterns. After enjoying the completed projects, I am now pondering selling these on Etsy. Which is your favorite? And how much money would sound reasonable to you for these?
