So, apparently there are these unwritten rules when it comes to making baby gear:
Baby clothes and blankets = pastels
Baby toys = bright primary colors
I want bright red onesies, dammit! And deep, vibrant blue and purple baby blankets!
It's even practical. Spit-up stains have *got* to show less on a saturated color. Maybe it's a holdover from before there was color-safe bleach?
I swear, there's an untapped niche market here. If I weren't about to have a child, and was slightly more inclined to large amounts of sewing, and felt like taking on Yet Another Business Venture, I'd start my own shop of Baby Stuff in Real Colors (tm).
