If you can crochet, you can either buy flannel, burp cloths or ready-made receiving blankets, and finish the edge with crochet.

You can make a double layered receiving blanket just by sewing two together along the serged edge.

You can trim a receiving blanket with lace, ribbon, etc. for a beautiful finish!
