I like to make these flannel blankets to use as receiving blankets for babies or just fun blankets for kids.
They're soft and cozy and couldn't be easier to make!
1. cut 2 pieces of flannel to be the same size.
(flannel is usually 45 inches wide, so if you buy 1 1/4 yards or each you'll have a square blanket)
2. layer the fabric, wrong sides together
3. fold the edge over about 1/4 inch and then again 1/2 inch (like a hem) and pin in place.
like in this picture...
4. stitch close to the inside edge of your hem all the way around. Make sure to sew the fold on each corner down as you go- again, just look at the picture :)
Now make a couple more and you'll have a sweet baby gift or two on hand.
