Cool weather always brings the need to snuggle in something soft. Our kids love to nuzzle under comfy covers while hanging out on the sofa or when they feel like hanging outdoors with our animals. These simple, not-too-bulky flannel blankets are the perfect weight to keep you warm. Accessorized with some fun, bright pom pom trim, they are also great holiday gifts. Make a few to have on hand when heading out to a football game, fall hike or just as an extra layer.


  • 2 yards of flannel fabric
  • ribbon or trim (enough to surround the perimeter of the two yards of fabric)
  • pins
  • scissors
  • sewing machine and matching thread
