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.



Simple and beautiful. It’s so many pattern you can use for this type of blanket. It makes perfect baby shower gifts or any occasion.
