How to make a fleece tie blanket

Since it is Christmas I decided to try to make a fleece blanket for my mother. It is real simple to make.

  • First you will need 2 pieces of fleece, about 1 to 1 1/4 yards each.
  • A pair of fabric scissors
  • A ruler or straight-edge.

This is the fleece that I purchased at Hobby Lobby (my favorite store)

Step 1: lay the fleece on a flat surface with the sold color on the bottom and the pattern  fleece on top.

Step 2: you will cut out a square that is 3-4 inches on each corner of the blanket.

Step 3: You will the cut slits about 3 inches deep all the way around the fabric. There is an example of this above.

Step 4: After cutting the slits, double knot each one. Keep doing this until your blanket is complete.
