Are there 'fancy' flats?

I know the beauty of flats is their simplicity, but I was kind of hoping for an upgrade from my basic unbleached cotton FST style flat. Something more absorbent, or in cute prints, or plusher... anything?

Where can I find some?

Re: Are there 'fancy' flats?

Swaddle bees makes cotton flats with prints, but they do fade. They also have bamboo flats and I think Cotton Babies is suppose to be coming out with an organic cotton flat soon. That's all I can think of for now, will come back if I think of anything else.

Re: Are there 'fancy' flats?

I once saw a mama on here post a picture of her all Carters receiving blanket flat stash. They make really cute prints and it was the most adorable bin full of flats I'd ever seen.

I was going to suggest this. I have some receiving blanket flats just for the cute prints. They don't fade as much unlike the swaddlebees flats.

Re: Are there 'fancy' flats?

The Ikea "flats" had prints. I haven't been there in awhile, so I don't know if they're still selling them, but they might be on FSOT. A year ago, Target was selling colored flour sacks with stripes at the border, and I got some to use as flats.

Hahaha...I was just going to say the same thing..."Yes, they're called receiving blankets." but I didn't want to seem rude...

They are super cute on...I think there's a thread with a bunch of cute pics of babes in receiving blanket flats.

The Swaddlebees flats are super cute, but I haven't seen them around in a while. IKEA does have some print flats, but there is only 1 print (unless you find the old red and blue ones on FSOT)
