One of my mom's things is to
embroider crochet receiving blankets and matching burp cloths for baby gifts.
They're 36-in square, double sided flannel that she gets hem-stitched at the flannel and quilting megastore in Bountiful, Utah, then she
embroiders crochets the edges all around.
My wife learned how to do it, too, and she's started making a few to give to our friends as gifts. It takes maybe an hour/side to do, depending on the complexity of the pattern. I think they use edge patterns from handkerchiefs.
Anyway, the kid loves them; they wear like iron, get really soft, and the kid rolls the edge in her fingertips as a little comforting device. She's done it since she was old enough to unclench her fists.
Though we barely used some of the dozen or so sets my mom made for the kid, she wanted to make some new ones for the new kid. We happily accepted.
This time around, I wanted to get away from the more traditional, tiny prints and checks and flowers, though, so I suggested some solid color combos. The pink/orange choice was made when we still didn't know whether the new kid was a boy or a girl. My wife seems to think they're very Bugaboo-ish, and she's probably not far off.
[update: the wife points out that the technique is crochet, not embroidery, so yeah, that might help your pattern search a bit. sorry. -ed.]
[update update: and while I'm at it, I should make clear that the stitch patterns are not, in fact, handkerchief patterns, but blanket patterns. Your handkerchief patterns are much lacier and open and use a much finer gauge of thread than your blanket patterns. When it comes to craft, my wife is clearly the Lara Holt, and I am the attention-hogging Remington Steele. Though she's also the hot one, so that analogy only goes so far...Did you hear the NFL's going to broadcast the Patriots game on network TV, though? Mitt Romney thinks they have another chance at the World Series this year.]
