-duplicate background layer
-sample the blanket color using the eye dropper tool
-use the paint bucket to pour the brown color over the entire image
-lower the opacity enough so you can see the baby
-create a layer mask on the brown layer
-using the brush tool, paint over the areas you do not want (in my case brown)
I used the brush at 100% over the blanket right in front of the baby, then I lowered the opacity and started painting over the blanket all around him, I kept lowering the opacity painting all around him to get that "fade" look.
- I then added a gaussian blurr over the brown layer, created a second layer mask and applied all the above steps I used in the brown fade.

I hope this makes sence.
