Cut two pieces of micro-fleece to the size you wish to make the blanket. Trace the templates in simple shapes such as hearts, stars or ducks onto micro-fleece in a coordinating color. Cut out the shapes.
Place the shapes where you want the added details on one of the pieces of fleece. Pin the appliqu��s in place. Sew the appliqu��s onto the fleece, outlining the shape with an over-lock stitch.
Place the two pieces of fleece together, with the right sides of fabric touching. Pin the perimeter of the blanket, and sew the blanket together using an over-lock stitch. Be sure to leave a few inches on one side to turn the blanket right side out. After turning out the blanket, push out the corners. Close the blanket with a slip stitch.
Pin the perimeter of the sewed blanket, and add a flange edge by sewing a border 2 inches inside the edge.
