My hubby's cousin had a baby boy a few weeks ago, it is their first boy after having two girls. I made up a soft flannel blanket for the new little guy.
I found several tutorials on pinterest for a self binding blanket- it's easy and fun to do. Make sure your layers are square and it will be an easy project.
My mom gifted me a lot of fabric last time I was visiting, this fabric was from that stash.
Squaring the fabric before you start sewing=incredibly square corners after :D
