Introduction: Cozy Quilted Blanket With Frills
I love to have a cozy blanket on a chilly day, so I made a 'Cozy Quilted Blanket With Frills'.
I hope you enjoy this project.
-2 polar fleece throw blankets 50-60 in. (any colour)
-Needle and thread
- 9 cm x 9 cm square card stock cutout
- 9 cm x 2 1/2 cm strip card stock cutout
-Measuring stick or tape measure
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies.
Step 2: Wash and Dry Your Blankets.
Step 3: Rip Out the Outer String.
Step 4: Pin It Together and Trim.
Put your 2 blankets together on a flat surface and pin all around the outside. Trim any excess material.
NOTE: For this blanket you will not be sewing on the inside so put both of the sides that you want showing facing out.
Step 5: Cut Corners.
Cut out all 4 corners with your 9 cm x 9 cm square. Remove pins as you cut.
Step 6: Cut Strips.
Take the small strip (9 cm x 2 1/2 cm) and use it as a guide to cut your strips. Place strip on edge of blanket ( start at the corners ) cut in a straight line up the side of the strip. Do this all around the blanket. Remove pins as you cut.
Step 7: Fold Each Strip.
After each strip fold it up on other side of the blanket until later.
Step 8: Slits.
Now that you have your strips cut you need to cut a little slit ( big enough to pull the rest through ) through the center of each folded piece.
Step 9: Knots.
Now that you have the slits in your strips you need to take the bottom of each strip and pull it through each slit. Do this all around the blanket.
Step 10: Quilt Lines.
On the back of your blanket draw light straight lines with your measuring tape for sewing later. You can do any pattern. Do as many lines as you want.
Step 11: Sewing.
Sew along your straight line patterns on the back side of your blanket.
Step 12: Sew in the Opposite Direction on the Lines.
They should look like diamonds.
Step 13: Wash and Dry the Blanket Again.
This step is optional but I recommend it if you want the pencil lines washed out.
Step 14: Enjoy!
Now your blanket is all finished.
I hope your enjoy your homemade blanket.
