This blanket is so soft and cuddly I kinda want to make a larger size for myself. Soft flannel surrounded and backed by luxurious minky...who wouldn't want a blanket like that?
If you wanted to make an easier version of this blanket, cut the two fabrics the same size. Put the right sides together and stitch 1/2 inch around the edges leaving an opening of 6 to 8 inches. Turn fabrics right side out and press out the seams. Slip stitch the opening closed and stitch around the blanket 2 inches from the edge. You won't have the minky border framing the flannel with this option, but what little person is going to care about that!
And as a added bonus the blanket can always be used for some fun peek-boo-games!
