How to make a tied no sew fleece blanket
These are so cozy and comfy. I recommend for you to get the nice no-pill fleece. These make a nice gift for a flower girl or ring bearer or anybody really. Make one for yourself too.
You will need a printed fleece and a solid fleece.
You can make these any size you want.
1 1/2 yards make a decent size throw
3 yards makes a twin size
Purchase this amount for both cuts of fabric.
Throw size – 50” x 65”
Twin size – 70” x 90”
Make it as wide as you can depending on the fleece. It is generally 58-60” wide.
Cut off the selvages.
Spread the material out on the floor or on a large kitchen table. The front and back need to be the same size. The right sides or softest sides need to both face out. Therefore, you have wrong sides together. Trim them so they are the same size.
At this point, if you want to embroider a name on it, put it on the solid color so that it shows up. Use a good stabilizer and the font of your choice. Center it towards the top or angle it down in a corner.
Place fabrics back down on the floor.
Next, you are going to cut a square out of each corner.
Cut a 4” square out of each corner.
Next, cut strips along each edge that are 1” wide and 4” deep, cutting the front and the back at the same time. You can use a good pair of fabric scissors or use a rotary cutter with a rotary mat and a quilting ruler.
Tie a square knot on each corner to hold it in place. You are using a front piece and back piece for each knot. A square knot will stay in and not come out during washing.
To make a square knot, go right over left and then left over right.
After that, you are ready to tie a square knot on each section.
That’s it friend! You now know how to make a tied no sew fleece blanket. Congratulations!!!
