No Sew Fleece Blanket Without The Knots

No Sew Fleece Blanket Without Knots

A No Sew Fleece Blanket makes a great Christmas present for anyone who is always cold like I am. It is quick, easy and fairly inexpensive (the NFL fabric is a little more expensive than a regular print). This version does not have knots but instead loops the strips to make it almost look braided from the back. The fleece fabric used is always going on sale at Joann.  Or if it is not on sale just download their app - they are always putting out great coupons.  Walmart is where I found the backing for this blanket. It was on clearance for $2 a yard. You can't beat that! And just an FYI - I am not a Dallas Cowboys fan. I made this blanket for another family member who happens to love the Cowboys.

Materials:

2 yards printed fleece 2 yards solid color fleece Scissors

Directions:

  1. Lay the print fabric, right side up, on top of the solid fabric. Trim around the edges to make sure they are all even. Once everything is even, cut a 4 inch square from each corner.

2. Around all 4 edges, cut 4 inch long strips about 1-2 inches in width.   No Sew Fleece Blanket

 3. Fold the strips up onto the blanket. No Sew Fleece Blanket

 4.  Where the fold is in the strip, cut a small 1/2 inch slit in each strip. No Sew Fleece Blanket No Sew Fleece Blanket

 5. Grab both pieces of fabric on a strip, loop the strip under then push the edges through the slit. Or you can reverse the loop and the "braided" part will be on the front.  Pull strip all the way through. Repeat for every strip all the way around. No Sew Fleece Blanket
