A Blanky for a Fireman's Grandson

I picked up this black minky fabric when I went to the LA Fashion District in January for REALLY CHEAP & I decided it was time to do something with it.
I have had this fire dog fabric for years & since my father-in-law is a fireman, we love firemen EVEN MORE than the typical boy in our family!!!

I decided this baby boy in my tummy needed another blanket to love & cuddle, so I sewed this up for him...
Nothing fancy, just laid them together, cut them to the size I wanted using another baby blanket as a template, pinned & sewed a straight line all the way around. Then I turned the black over on to the top, tucked under the raw edge & sewed a straight line again. The corners got a little bulky but I figure it will just make them more durable, since my children seem to love to chew on the corners of their blankets! :)
I need a blanket made out of this material, 
it is soooo soft.
The only problem? 
This 2 year old thinks the blanket is his ;)
