What are you most proud of? These are so cozy & pretty. My g-kids love them. They get fluffier with each washing.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use 3 layers of cotton, at least 2 should be flannel. Don't wash them first. Don't use scizzors for snipping use snippers. This is a good size for a security blanket (16"). Any smaller and it's not a comfort to them. Any bigger & they'll trip on it when carrying it everywhere they go.

My hands are old and arthritic. Would this process be too labor intensive for my hands if I tried to make a lap size in this way?

Yes. This is just 16" and my hands were all cramped up and blistered.

How many layers of fabric have you used and is it cotton or a mixture of fabrics?

Hi from Oz! How do I get the instructions to make this? Sorry, I'm a newbie and cant seem to find any links. Thanks Kim

Instructions for these projects are neccesarily posted. This isn't a Craftsy project. See my comments above on the fabric and just sew your fabric "sandwich" of squares together with WRONG sides together so seam allowance is on the topside. Snip at close intervels & wash & dry.
