Baby Flannel Blankies!

Last year a friend asked if I could make her some blankets to send in her Operation Christmas Child boxes, this year she asked again!

But this year we decided to go with a flannel fabric, 
because the fleece that I used last year was too bulky and took up a lot of room in the shoe box. 

Last year I did fleece no sew (fleece will not fray) with a crochet edge.
This year I used a serger to finish the edge ( the flannel will fray).
We also changed the size up, and went with a 25" x 30" size, as these are for small children, toddler or babies.  

After packing them up to send away, we decided that next year we will do the flannel again but we could either do it with a front and back (like a quilt) or go bigger.
