Here is a quick and easy gift to make in only a few hours. This blanket is so easy! It's a no sew project perfect for a beginner. Just a bit of scissor work and some tying. That's all!
What you will need:
2 metres of printed arctic fleece.
2 metres of contrasting arctic fleece.
Large green rotary mat
Large quilting ruler
First step is to lay out the fabrics wrong sides together and then even out the cut ends of fabric to ensure they are straight.
Remove all the selvedges as well.
The next step is to cut a 4" square out of each corner. This makes the corners nice and neat and easier to tie as well.
I laid out the blanket on my green rotary mat and used the grid and the clear ruler to evenly cut the strips into 1" x 4" strips along all 4 sides.
Then it is just a matter of double knotting all the ties. This will connect the two fabrics together.
And here is the finished blanket! It was so easy. Two hours max from start to finish. The blanket is super cozy and the perfect size for lounging on the couch with a good book or a movie.
