montessori materials for infants

it is made of unbleached cotton batting covered by unbleached cotton broadcloth. the sham is 100% cotton and is trimmed with cotton eyelet lace.
this is my first attempt at making one at home. i have to practice in order to make them perfect. but i figure since i have only made one other one, and that was four years ago, this isn't too shabby. oh, and this is the 5th time i have used a sewing machine in my adult life.
and these are gobbi mobiles! originally intended to introduce an infant to the concept of gradation of colour and give the eye practice in discerning between similar colours. they are meant for visual stimulation only, as they are very fragile. when baby is old enough to start reaching and grasping, the gobbi can be replaced with a ring on a ribbon, and the gobbi should be hung somewhere out of reach. even older babies enjoy looking at the gobbi mobile.
i am planning to start selling these as a means of supplementing my regular income. any feedback? especially from those of you who sell your handcrafted wares?
