Large Receiving Blanket

I bought this dog/fire engine fabric at the Joann's after Thanksgiving sale and I think it is just adorable. All's this blanket is are two pieces of flannel sewed together as a sandwich (each piece of flannel is 1.25 yds). I made 3 for Gregory because Nick and I found that we really like them for swaddling (much bigger/better/warmer than the piddly store bought recieving blankets), covering the car seat to block the wind when transferring him to and from the car, laying one on the couch to sit on with the baby to protect the couch from inevitable spitups, and using as an impromptu protective layer for diaper changes and tummy time. Lots of uses for such a simple thing.
