Fleece blankets are definitely the most comfortable and the excitement of Doing It Yourself…should be that much fun. It was for me. For a moment there my sister and I went fleece craze and made it for three little cousins and my nephew.
The illustration here is the one I made for my 21months old cousin. Kids love the disney characters and knowing that she loves watching Kai Lan I made this one.
To make this you’ll need:
Fleece fabric – a solid and a Print (to achieve this look)
A scissors and a Measuring tape
I used about 2 yards each. On the second pic, I made sure that they aligned together so that the solid is on top and print is under (vice versa), it doesn’t matter in what order. Then I proceeded to cut up about 4 inches from each corner (4 total) that determines your tieing limit.
Next cut slits around the blanket. Be sure to cut through both pieces. Your cuts should be about two inches wide and four inches long. Be consistent all the way around. And when you start tieing make sure that when you knot, your solid slit is laying on top of the print side and vice versa. It should take about 30 mins to do the tieing and after that …Voila! you have yourself a new blanket.
The finished blanket…Sorry I’ll do a better visual next time.
