DIY Project: Fleece Knotted Blanket

STEP 1: Buy 2 yards of fleece fabric for each side (or more if you want a super long blanket). I bought 2 yards of Mickey and 2 yards of non-pilling black fleece. Trim off any rough edges or blank fabric (such as the barcode/model # on the fabric etc.) and line up the 2 fabrics with the bright/best sides facing out, with the dullest sides facing each other.

STEP 2:  Determine the length of the ties you want. I used about 2.5 inches, and cut a 2.5 x 2.5 inch square from each corner of the fabrics.

STEP 3: Cut strips into the fabric, 0.5 to 1 inch width each, on all 4 sides of cutting inward about 2.5 inches in length.

STEP 4: As you're cutting the strips into each side, tie every 3-5 strips just to keep the fleece pieces lined up.

STEP 5: Once all strips are cut all around the blanket, finish tying the knots and you've got a fleece knotted blanket.

Enjoy!

  3. We make custom fleece blankets at our house as gifts. They're pretty easy and people love them.

  4. I saw this project on your Pinterest board and looked fun so checked it out. I like the edge strips instead of stringy yarn or something smaller that gets tangled.

  5. I like this edging since it is not prone to snagging and love the Mickey print too!
