This is a blanket that I made for Rich January 2006, while he was at Great Lakes Naval training. With help from my sister-in-law I cut it somewhat evenly, then we measured the edges and cut strips 1 inch wide, and about 4-6 deep (I can't remember exactly since its been a few years). Then we used safety pins all over to keep the whole thing together in place. Then I tied the lined up strips together and took out the saftey pins. Both fabrics are flannel, so he stayed toasty warm.
