Years ago, I made Miss Main Street a cuddle blanket/lap blanket out of Minkee and flannel. She took it to college with her to cuddle with while watching TV. The years have not been good to the flannel side, which was splitting at the seams and had generally seen better days. A new one was in order.
The light blue plush is Minkee Dot and the print is a cozy flannel. I got both pieces at Yoder's in Shipshewana, IN, a stop on one of my trips to Chicago this summer. (If you are in the area, this store is worth a visit. Only a short detour from US 80/90 in northern Indiana.)
I followed a tutorial from Missouri Quilt Co, called The Self Binding Receiving Blanket except I increased the size to 45" by 60". Jenny provides great instructions and it is pretty fast to make. It is even easier when you use two pieces of flannel. The Minkee fabric is a bit tricky; it is a knit and wants to stretch and curl.
