Rag-Style Baby Blankets

I love making these baby blankets.  They are SO easy!  Takes about 2 hours to make one.  I use 1 1/4 yards of flannel for each side.  With wrong sides together, I pin all the way around and then trace around a 9" paper plate to round the corners.  I then sew a 1 1/2" seam all the way around.  Then I fringe all the way around by cutting almost to the seam.  I then take floss and "tie" it like you would a quilt.

I've obviously not washed these yet, but the more you wash them the more "raggy" the edges will look.

You could make a couple of burp cloths to match and it would make a great baby gift.
