So, do you think it could work to use the fleece on the front and flannel on the back and tie the cut pieces on the front together and after a couple washings trim them to the same length?
I put flannel and fleece together all the time. But I wouldn't do raggy, the flannel frays too much. I sewed the squares with wider (3/8" or 1/2") seams to the inside. I also use one large piece of fleece. Then I would either sew the 2 layers with 3" or 4" rows of stitching or tie. For a child the stitching is best. Hope this answers your questions.
