Fleece Tie Blanket

So we've all seen these... They're super easy, no-sew blankets... I FINALLY made one with the help from Jan, my soon-to-be-mother-in-law (STBMIL). She's been cutting and sewing up a storm, making 125 Days for Girls kits (whoa!), and getting much of the flannel donated. In the mix of all the flannel, there was some soft fleece, perfect for a baby blanket. So we decided to make that knotted blanket we've all seen so much...

We followed this tutorial on wikiHow.

1. Cut your top and bottom fleece to the same size.

2. Cut a 4" square from each corner.

3. Cut strips 1" wide and 4" long all the way around your fleece pieces.

4. Tie a knot (2 times to stay securely) with a strip from each layer (top and bottom).

5. Keep tying knots all the way around the blanket.

6. Snuggle up and enjoy!

A huge thanks to Jan for providing all the materials needed for this project, as well as taking the pictures! Such cute and snuggly fun!

Happy Crafting!
