Easy Gift: No Sew Fleece Blanket


When you give a gift that was made by you, it is from the heart, and more special.  That is why most of my family, or even friends, have received a blanket from me.  It is a very easy project that you can complete in just a few hours.  With the days cold, this easy no sew fleece blanket, would be a perfect project for a gift or just for yourself.

Supplies Needed:
-Pick out two different fleece prints
You will need (2) yards of each print (for adult)
* Toddler Size 1 yard
*Small Child 1 1/2 yards
-scissors
-tape measure
-A large work area

First you will lay the two pieces of material together.  Make sure they match; trim any excess material .  (You may pin the material together if that will help you keep it straight.)

Then you will make a 5 in. square in each corner. (I do two corners at a time)
Do the corner next that will be at the end of the row you are tying.






Next you will cut 5 in long, 1 in wide, strips to tie.




 I cut about 5 at a time, then I start tying.




Work your way around the blanket and before you know it, you'll be done!



 
I also did this blanket too....



Email me if you have any questions! Have fun!

  3. Wow!! That doesn't look too difficult! Do you cut all four corners? I originally stopped by to thank you for the Liebster award. I was just given one last week so I may sit this one out but I appreciate the nomination!!!
