Make a no sew blanket in a few hours and amaze your friends and family with your skills! These make great gifts and who doesn't appreciate a personalized gift? The only rule about making these is that there are no rules except to have fun making it and incorporate what works for you.

When you are finished, you will have a two-layer blanket in the color and size of your choosing. I chose contrasting colors because I thought they would look nice but you could also choose similar colors too.

Step 1: Here Is What you Need

Here is what you will need:
  1. Two fleece blankets of the same size
  2. Cutting device (scissors or rotary cutter)
  3. Large enough area to spread out both blankets on top of each other.
  4. Ruler
Here are optional things*:
  1. Cutting mat
  2. yard stick
  3. clothes pins
  4. seam ripper
  5. lint remover
  6. Quilter's ruler
  7. Needle and thread
*I already had these things so I used them but they are not necessary to complete this blanket.

Step 2: Spread Out Blankets and Rip Out the Binding Thread

Spread out the blankets and rip out the binding thread if it is present on your blanket. Use the seam ripper but if you don't have a seam ripper, a pair of scissors will be fine.

The lint remover comes in very handy at this point because it really helps to get all of those lose threads especially when the fabric and thread are the same color!

Step 3: Even all sides

Put the two blankets together and even up the edges. They do not have to be perfectly even but close. Use your scissors or rotary cutter to even up the edges. If you are using a rotary cutter, make sure you have a cutting mat underneath your blankets.

Step 4: Pin the Blankets Together

This is a totally optional step but if you have a larger blanket, put clothes pins around the perimiter of the blankets. It helps keep the edges together better. Use as few or as many as you would like.
