These make wonderful baby gifts and are pretty too! I strongly suggest looking for sales on flannel. I found the best sale for flannel during black Friday, last year!

Prepping for the Edging
Once you have cut and sewn your burp cloths and blankets together, it is time to prep for the edging.
Your seam for the burp cloth after trimming, clipping and turning should be about 1/4″ this is perfect for where to punch the holes into the material. I measure between holes with my pinky.
Pinky covers part of the 1st hole and the next hole is made on the other side of my pinky. Continue around and make last hole as evenly between first as possible.
Instructions for Crocheting Edging
Attach thread to the hook with a slip knot. *Push crochet hook through the hole, yarn over, go back through the hole, yarn over, pull through one loop, yarn over pull through remainder loops, (One loop should remain on hook), make two chains and repeat* After the last hole, ch 2, slip stitch into first stitch made at the beginning.
Ch 1, sc in same stitch, sc in each ch and sc around to beginning. When you reach where you started slip stitch into first stitch.
ch 1, sc, * sc next sc, ,ch 3, skip 2, repeat *, last ch 3, then slip stitch in sc at beg
Ch 1 sc next sc, *ch 2, sc next ch, ch 3, sc nxt ch, ch 2, sc nxt ch, sc in sc, repeat*
