Should I make cute blankets?

I recently made a cute fleece blanket for a friend with cute matryoshka and cat print (this is the fabric for the curious, it just had red trim all round) and with the cold weather (well, for the Northern hemisphere at least) approaching, it got me thinking, perhaps our lovely lolis would like some cute blankets to keep them warm?

I'd have dived and made a couple already, to share and feel around, if it weren't for the price of fleece - it's quite expensive, so before I do, I feel compelled to ask around. I'd made various kinds (bigger/smaller, with simple hem or with lace/bows/appliques etc) and perhaps do commissions for these to fit your wishes.

As I try to figure out the price of these, I'd say for a large blanket (~150x200 cm) with simple trim or a half blanket (~100x150cm) with fancy trim (like double row of lace running all around the hem with bows or something (think hems of skirt)) would be around ~30-35$ (this really depends on the total material cost, but this would be the rough price for them).

So, do you feel you'd like a blanket with a cute print (I know for sure that the have all kinds of Minnie and Dysney prints there, some silly cowboy prints and other I can't recall (I'm going to check them out today or tomorrow)) or just colored ones with cute trims and such for your room. Or is this a silly idea altogether, I shouldn't bother and just stick to clothing?

Please share your thoughts!
Thank you in advance! <3
