I spotted the coolest fleece at Spotlight the other weekend and thought it would make an awesome little boy's blanket.
I wanted to keep it simple so all I did was trim off the selvedges, round the corners and finish the edges on my overlocker. Fleece doesn't fray so the overlocking isn't strictly necessary but I think it finishes it off nicely.
If you don't have an overlocker you can hand sew around the edges using a blanket stitch or there are some great no-sew options, like this one here.
