I always keep an eye out for flannel and minky-type fabrics in remnant bins to make these from. I sew them together pillowcase style, turn right side out, and stitch over the edge.
Some of them are big enough to use as blankets, but most are smaller. They're really meant to be used more as security blankets or "lovies" for a toddler. I put a loop on each one so it can be clipped to a stroller or diaper bag.
I've got 11 freshly washed and very cuddly lovies ready to go now. The kitties insisted on quality testing (prior to the wash).

I love them both! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I hope you're warm, well-fed, and surrounded by faaily tonight.
