Introduction: Fleece Tie- Blanket
1. Two piece of fleece fabric ( 1 1/2 yards, 2 yards, or 3 yards in length)
3. Ruler if not sure how to estimate sizes and lengths. (optional)
Step 1: Start
Lay the two pieces of fleece flat one on top of each other.
Step 2: Cutting
Cut the extra fabric off on the length and width if fleece pieces are not exactly the same size.
Step 3: Corners
You will cut both fleece pieces at the same time. Go to each of the 4 corners and cut out a 3 by 3 square.
Step 4: Corners
Remove the the fleece from the cut corners. The corners will look "missing" and removed.
Step 5: Preparing to Cut
Get your scissors and pick one of the four corners to start at. You will be cutting on side of the rectangle blanket at a time.
Step 6: Begin to Cut
Cutting through both pieces of fleece and starting at one corner begin to cut 1 inch wide slits. You will start at the edge of the blanket beside the corner and cut towards the middle about 2 inches. This will create first slit.
Step 7: Cutting the Whole Side
Now you will move one inch beside the slit you just make to make another one exactly like it and cut towards the middle again. After this you should have two slits and it will begin looking like you created fringe on the side of the blanket. Repeat until whole side is cut
Step 8: Other 3 Sides
You will then repeat cutting the other 3 sides of the fleece just like you cut the whole first side.
Step 9: Begin to Tie
Once all 4 sides are cut and looks like the blanket has fringe on all four sides. It is time to tie. You will pick any corner to start and you will tie the two pieces of fleeces together with a double knot. This will begin to connect the two pieces of fleece. You will double knot tie all the fringe like slits all the way about the fleece blanket.
Step 10: Done Tying
Once you have tied all the fringe like slits together your blanket is complete! It's ready to use or give away. You can wash them in the washing machine if you like.
