Picture of Easy Fleece Blanket with Satin Edges
This is a super easy way to make a finished looking blanket or throw similar to this.  You can really customize your color scheme for any decor and is also a great way to make blankets for new babies for a personal touch and kids have a lot of fun picking out their own blanket and binding colors to express their personal style!  As for me, I just found this super soft mustache fabric and bought all that was left on the bolt to make this blanket!

Step 1: Things you will need

Picture of Things you will need
You will need:
-fabric, however much you want depending on the size of your blanket.  I like to use polar fleece types of fabrics, but I have also used flannel for thinner blankets.
-Blanket binding, enough to go around the entire edge of the blanket.  You should be able to find blanket binding at fabric stores, but if you can't find any, you can use satin ribbon, at least 2 inches wide.  Iron the ribbon so it has a crease down the center and it becomes blanket binding!
-scissors
-sewing machine (I guess you could do it without a machine, but it would take ages)
-pins, lots and lots of pins

I made mine x-tra cozy by using 2 layers of fleece.

This is a great alternative to those tie edges. Thanks:)
Yeah, the tie edges are great if you don't have a sewing machine, but I think that this way of doing it give a much cleaner finished look.
