5-Step Fleece Tie Blanket

Teal Banner Copy Goes Here (OR DELETE)


Materials Needed: fleece (at least 1.5 yards), scissors, tabletop; Optional: 5” cardboard square and yardstick

  1. Choose and Purchase Fleece Fabric
    Choose a print AND a contrasting OR matching solid. The two fabric pieces will need to be the same size.
  2. Line Up the Two Fabric Pieces
    Line up the two fabrics, right sides OUT. Anti-pill solids are FUZZY on the right side. Anti-pill prints will be more distinct on the front side.
  3. Cut the Corners
    Cut a 5” square from each of the four corners. Tip: Place a 5” cardboard square on corner and cut.
  4. Cut the Fringe
    Cut fringe on all four sides of the blanket, through both layers of fabric at the same time. Fringe pieces should be a little wider than the width of your finger. Cut in from the edge 5 inches. Tip: lay a yard-stick across the fabric, 5 inches from the edge.
  5. Tie Knots
    Leave blanket lying flat on the surface, with all fringes lined up. Start tying from one side and go around the blanket, tying all the fringes together on all four sides of the blanket.
