I am not all that great with my sewing machine but they were soooo easy to make! I used minkie fabric (one side was flat and the other side has little bubbles...awesome!) which made them super soft and also very washable. I made mine about 16 inches square or so...so not big enough to cover a baby/child but still fairly big. Then I added about five folded ribbons per side. sorry - Dont' know how to add pictures! They were super easy and fun to make.
