What are you most proud of? I started making these little blankets for my own babies more than 40 years ago. I've lost track of the number of mothers who've told me that this little blanket was "the one" - the one that became a constant companion and finally fell apart after countless washings and being dragged everywhere. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Always prewash the flannel! It will often twist a bit. If that happens, the two layers of the blanket will twist in opposite directions and never again lie flat.
