Introduction: No Sew Fleece Tie Blanket JIG

So i watched my sister and mom make a no sew tie blanket. what a pain in the @ss! you have to keep measuring and pinning needles and it took them hours to make blankets. so i came up with this jig, that is cheap and folds for storage.

STUFF YOU WILL NEED-

  • 2 sheets of 1/4" masonite
  • a piece of sheet rubber
  • contact cement
  • aluminum tape or duct tape

TOOLS YOU NEED-

  • drill
  • speed square
  • 1/2" drill bit - i used a mortise bit
  • tape measure
  • colored pencil with bright lead
  • scrap 1x wood to make a saw jig
  • chalk line or long straight edge

Step 1: Getting Started

  • cut the masonite in to 2 pieces 30x50 and 1 piece 12x60
  • when you put them together it will be 60x50
  • use the tape measure and mark 4" on each corner and snap a line to connect them.
  • then after that mark 1" then 1/2" then 1" then 1/2" untill you reach the other end. do all 4 sides.
  • take the speed square and mark lines.
  • take the 1/2" bit and drill a hole at the end of every 1/2" mark like in the photos.

Step 2: Cutting the Groves

  • take the scrape 1x and make a jig that slides down the masonite but extends out to keep the back of the saw straight.
  • go around the masonite and cut all the lines to connect to the holes that were drilled.
  • take the 12" piece and mark, drill, and cut the same way.
  • find center of the 12" piece and make a handle.
  • cut the rubber to go about 12' on each side.
  • glue the masonite and the rubber wait till all most dry then stick together and tape the edges.

Step 3: Use It

  • unfold on kitchen table
  • spreed both layers of fleece out on top of it
  • set the 12" jig on top and cut the fleece between each wood groove
  • do all for sides and remove top jig
  • all you need to do is tie all the pieces and DONE!
  • you can do a blanket in 15 to 20 minuets.

To do ours all we did was cut them into strips then tie them together

My family loves to make these types of blankets. Now all the work that they go through can be shortened emensley!

I've done a couple of these blankets. I'd have loved to have one of these!
