Super easy peasy. I am by no means a seamstress. I just like to make cool stuff (well I think it is) for myself and friends.
I started with this already made clearance blanket for like $5 at Hobby Lobby. Beckett added the milk stain 10 minutes before this photo was taken. :)
I wanted it more "patchwork" so I did 4 big squares - 2 minky - 2 owl cotton fabric. So I cut those and laid them out. Sewed the 2 top ones together, the two bottom ones together.
Then sewed the 2 sections together.
I did pin these together working with the silky slick fabrics they moved around a bit. (I don't sew perfect and I had to just trim along the edges. Lay out your fabric good (right) sides facing each other. ugly sides out. Sewing with the cotton fabric/minky combo on top against will be easier. Don't forget to leave a hole in the middle to turn it right side out. Cut your corners, turn right side out, and push the corners out. Sew it back up.
