If you have a printed flannel fabric, then cut off the white selvedge edge from both sides.

Lay your fabrics down right sides together. Match up one long side and one short side to check if the other sides match up.

Pin the one long side and the one short side together. 2. If one rectangle is wider or longer than the other than trim it to be the same size.

Sew around the rectangle with a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Pivot at the corners. Leave a 6 inch hole and backstitch at both sides.

Trim the seam allowance at the corners to reduce the bulk. Turn the blanket right side out and poke out the corners.

Press all the edges flat. Edgestitch around all the edges and close the hole. Find the center horizontally and vertically and mark. Pin the two layers together along the center.

Sew a straight line along the center vertically and horizontally to keep the layers from separating.
