No Sew Fleece Blanket

Hello Readers! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Today I have for you a tutorial on how to make a fleece tie blanket! It’s a no-sew!dscn1106On black Friday I purchased fleece for 50% off! What a deal!

For a nicely sized blanket I started with 2 1/2 yards of a patterned fleece (My inner child chose the My Little Pony print) and 2 1/2 yards of a solid color (pink).

Lay the fleece on top of each other. Smooth out any wrinkles.

dscn1107I trimmed off the edges of the fleece. Here the print fleece had words on the edges and that would make for an ugly blanket.

dscn1108After all the ugly edges are trimmed cut 4×4 inch squares out of each of the corners.

It is best to use a rotary cutter and cutting mat with measurements.

dscn1109After the corners are cut it is time to cut the sides. Use your rotary cutter to cut 1×1 inch strips. I like to fold back every other strip. It makes it easier to keep track of them when you start typing them together. (My roomie gave me this super helpful tip)
