Sometimes you just can't come up with a gift idea for someone. Homemade gifts are always great options. Why not make a no-sew blanket for someone you love?
Select two different fleeces. I always choose a solid and a patterned. This one has a brown solid(the bottom) and a heart pattern (the top). The amount of fleece fabric you get depends on how large you would like to make the blanket. For this blanket I bought 1.5 yards of each fabric. This size makes for a great lap blanket. *Note my fleece fabric was bought at Joann Fabrics*
Lay your fleece fabrics on top of each other. Be sure that the more brightly colored sides face out.
Cut out a 5x5 inch square from each corner.
Now cut approximately 1 inch strips along the entire blanket.
Once your have cut your one inch strips it's time to tie.
Tie the corner strips together first using a simple knot to attach the bottom layer to the top layer.
You are basically tying one on either side of the cut out square until it looks like the above picture. Than proceed to do the same to all corners of the blanket.
After the corners are done tie the rest of the blanket.
