Picture of Easy fleece blanket with a serger

In this Instructable, I'm going to show you a very easy way to make a professional looking blanket out of just a couple of yards of material. This only took me about 15 minutes to complete but yielded a very high quality blanket.

It's a great way to make a simple gift for anyone in your life. I've even made ones for pets when I had smaller remnants of material left over!

I made this at TechShop.

Step 1: What you'll need

For this project, you'll need the following:

  • Fleece - I chose to make a throw blanket so I used just 4 yards of fabric (2 yards with design and 2 yards solid)
  • Fabric scissors
  • Pins
  • Serging/overlock cone thread - I'm using 100% polyester

TechShop has a serger machine in their textiles area so I used that.
