Would you buy these?

I made this blankie for a friend, and also made 1 for DD, but its in the wash, and Im wondering if there's a market for them.
They're cuddly fleece on 1 side, and alternating squares of flannel print and minky on the other side. Its hard to tell in these pics, but the monkey side is the fleece. Im wondering if anyone would buy them, and how much you would pay. They're toddler blanket sized, but I would offer lovie sized up to twin bed I think.
Thanks!

They are adorable. I personally would not buy them but non-sewing mamas surely might. I have no idea on pricing. Usually I think you take your material cost x 2 for wholesale and x3 for retail and add your hourly wage to arrive at a price.

It is cute but agreed that maybe non crafty moms/grandparents would like to buy them.
Since I sew I know I can make one myself.

Ha, didn't even notice the mismatch! But that is b/c DS2 is usually mismatched!
The blankets are cute. I am not sure on price though.

I would probably buy one. The smaller size maybe $20 and a Larger size maybe $30. But I dont know how much the materials cost so you would have to keep that in mind. I would also keep in mind when pricing if it was easy or difficult to make. And if it took up alot of time. Hope this helps.

very cute! I would try and make it myself too, but if you were to do the fleece side in silky satin you would definitely have a market, its hard to sew with, but moms seem to love and pay alot for the popular ally zabba blankets
