Directions to Make a No-Sew Fleece Blanket


Supplies: Sharp scissors, masking tape, a 3 inch square template and a 1 & 1/4 inch template (can make these from construction paper.)

Buy 2 yards of fleece for a med/large blanket or 1 & 1/2 yards for small.


1. Place fleece on the work table right side up and cut off selvage edges on both sides.  Make sure the piece has square straight edges. 

2. Cut a 3” square from each corner (use the template you made) and place a piece of masking tape from cut corner to cut corner.

 3. Cut each fringe to the edge of the tape – (use the 1 & 1/4 inch template you made).  Then remove tape and repeat on all 4 sides. Work from one edge to middle and then reverse edge to middle in case you need to fudge on the size.





4. Fold the fringe up and back - use the tips of scissors to make the tiny holes at the top/center of each fringe - (not larger than 1/8").  Remove tape.


5.  Loop the fringe down thru the tiny hole, by pushing it thru with a dowel or crochet hook.  Pull all the fringes the same way around the entire blanket.



That’s it – here is a picture of your finished edge on right side of blanket.

   



When you have finished your blanket, please drop it off or call for pick up.
