Two years ago I made a blanket for Chloe out of fleece. That blanket has been her most beloved since the night I gave it to her. (In fact, it's so well loved that there are some holes in it that need to be patched.)
I figured that Cora could probably use a fleece blanket of her own, and with the scraps I made a matching one for Little Baby, her favorite tiny little baby doll.
It's easy sewing - 6" squares of three fabrics sewn in a simple rotating pattern, seam side out. Then the seams are cut into fringe, and the edges of the blanket are fringed as well.
Keep an eye out for fleece on sale during the winter months - it's often available for half price, making this an inexpensive gift. Cora and Little Baby will get theirs on Christmas morning.
