Introduction: Fleece Tie Blankets
Have you ever wanted to make a fleece blanket before? Well now you can! Follow these instructions on how to make your first fleece tie blanket.
Items you will need:
2 separate pieces of fleece in your length of choice (we suggest 2 yds)
Step 1: Aligning Fabrics
Lay fabric pieces on top of each other on the floor.
Try to align the edges the best you can.
Step 2: Cutting Off Excess
Cut off excess fabric on each side so that all sides line up evenly. This will make a square or rectangle shape.
TIP: To keep the fabric held together you can safety pin the fabric after you have cut off excess fabric.
WARNING: Please be careful when using scissors.
Step 3: Cutting the Corners
Measure and cut out a 4 inch square in each corner of the fabric.
Step 4: Cutting Strips
Cut 1 inch wide and 4 inch long strips along each edge of the fabric.
Make sure you hold fabric pieces together while cutting.
To ensure alignment and keep the blanket together double knot each 4th strip.
Repeat for all 4 sides.
Step 5: Tying the Edges
Double knot the remaining stips on each side.
Make sure the blanket is flat while tying the strips.
Step 6: Finished Product
Now your blanket is complete!!
