Easy DIY No Sew Fleece Blanket

DIY fleece BLANKET 1. Select your fleece patterns. Use two different fleece patterns or two solid fleece blankets that complement each other. Alternately, use a pattern on one side and a solid color on the other. 2. Purchase 3-6 yards of fleece. 1.5-3 yards per side. 1.5 yards makes a decent size throw, 2.5-3 yards makes a nice twin size blanket. 3. Spread out the material. Spread it out so that the softer or more brightly colored sides face out, matching both up at one end and the sides as far as they lay flat. Trim if needed. 4. Consider how you measure the cuts to make the ties. They don't have to be exact. When cutting against the nap (usually the narrower end) the strips need to be a little longer (about 4-5 inches) than along the long sides, (about 2.5-3 inches because they don't stretch as much while tying. 5. Cut out a rectangle from both corners with scissors. Make sure you are cutting through both pieces of fleece. 6. Start cutting strips. Cut strips of approximately 1 inch from each corner down the end and the sides for as long as the material lies flat. 7. Tie corner strips together. Using a simple knot, attach the bottom layer to the top layer. 8. Tighten the knot. If you have trouble getting the knot tight due to arthritic or weak fingers, hold the end of one tail of the knotted pair with one hand and slide the fingers of the other hand up to push the knot tighter. 9. Tie the strips at the end between the two corners next in the same way. Don't worry if the fleece puckers. 10. Flatten the fleece out. Use flat hands to stretch and smooth the material so it lies flat again. 11. Tie the strips down each side for the length of the blanket. 12. Fold the tied portion up. Move the fleece down so that more of the material lies flat (trimming if needed) and repeat steps #6 through #8 until about 2/3 of the blanket is tied. 13. Turn the blanket around. Spread the blanket out so that the remaining end is flat. 14. Trim end and sides as needed. Repeat from step #5 until blanket is finished Your Fleece
