The Easiest Fleece Blanket Ever!

The Easiest Fleece Blanket Ever!

This blanket makes a great gift! For a cut wrapping idea, cut a thin strip off of the blanket before cutting the strips and use it to wrap around the rolled up blanket and tie a bow, super cute!

You will need:

3 yards fleece fabric & a pair of scissors.

To make:

(Check out the pics below) At one corner, start at about 3 inches inwards.  Cut a 3 inch line.   Then, next to the 1st line cut about ¼ - ½ inch over cut another 3 inch strip.  Continue doing this until you reach the end of that side of  fabric, leaving about 3 inch access.  Count the strips making sure you have an even number, this is VERY important!  Then, cut a 3 inch square out of the corner and then continue cutting the fabric strips around the entire fabric blanket.  It is not necessary to be super accurate with the cutting, if one strip is wider or longer it won’t be very noticeable.  Next, starting at a corner take two strips and tie them together, making a semi-loose knot.  Then, immediately tie a second knot on the same two strips, this time making it a tight knot.  Continue tying knots moving around the entire blanket.

That’s it, no sewing!
