I used scraps to make a small lovey-sized star blanket that is 11.5"x15". No batting necessary for this little guy!
Once the star is appliquéd to the front, I placed the backing right side down on top, sewed around the edges leaving a small opening for flipping. Once flipped right side out, topstitch along all the edges to sew the opening closed. Ta-da, a lovey from scraps!
