Step 1: Prepare the Fabric

Wash and dry both pieces of fabric.
(Note: Fleece fabric will shrink when dried; therefore, drying the fabrics before the blanket is made is beneficial. Wash in luke-warm water, and dry on low heat.)

Step 2: Cut the Corners

Cut out 3-inch squares from each corner. This keeps your blanket from bunching.

Step 3: Cut the Perimeter

Cut strips of fabric 3 inches deep and 1 inch wide around the perimeter of the two fabrics.

Step 4: Tie the Blanket

Tie the cut strips together in a knot, making sure that it is the alternating fabrics being tied together. Make sure to continue this step until the cut strips on all side are tied. This secures your blanket.

Step 5: Finished

You now have a no sew blanket! Enjoy!

If placed over head for too long, your blanket can cause suffocation. Be sure to use blanket responsibly.
