My friend (who's been there since I was about five!) is having a baby this month, so her aunt threw a baby shower a few weeks ago. I made this really cute flannel blanket in about three days (between work and class). It was really fun - just cut squares of flannel (front and back), stick a piece of batting in the middle, sew an "x" across the squares. Then just sew all the squares together (backs together), clip the edges, and wash!
