No Sew Fleece Blankets

No Sew fleece blankets can be any size you wish them to be from baby blanket on up.  Fleece comes 60-inches wide, so your blanket can be 60 x ??? Your finished product will be about 10-inches smaller than the fabric you start with.

Step 1:  Get two pieces of fleece the same size.

Step 2:  Line up the two fabrics, right sides OUT. Anti-pill solids are FUZZY on the right side. Anti-pill prints will be more distinct on the front side. Regular prints are hard to tell -- use the side that appeals to you.

Step 3:  Trim the two pieces so that they are the same size.

Step 4:  Cut a square out of each corner.  On a lap blanket or bigger, the square should be between 4 and 5 inches.

Step 5:  Cut fringe on all four sides of the blanket. Cut through both layers of fabric at the same time. Fringe pieces should be a little wider than the width of your finger. Cut in from the edge the same depth as the squares you cut in Step 4. 

 

 

 

 

Step 6:  Tye your knots.  Leave your blanket laying flat on the surface, with all fringes lined up. I find it easier to start tying from the left and work right, going around the blanket. If you are left-handed, you may find it easier to start on the right and work left. You can make your knots however you wish.  One type of knot is called a balloon knot... tie the knot just like you would if tying off a balloon! (that's the knot you see in this picture).

You can also tie a knot like you would make with a shoe lace. That kind of knot will be easier if your hands are arthritic.
