Tie Blanket

Tie blankets look cool with their fringes, knots and dual colors. You would be happy to know that they don’t require any sewing. Just a little bit of cutting and simple knotting does the trick. They are usually made of fleece as the material is light and stretchy. Also, it doesn’t fray when cut.

Supplies and Size Measurements

  • Two pieces of fleece fabric that are at least 40 inches in width (baby blankets are of 40 inches, toddlers need 54” while for adults it is 72”)
  • Tape measure or ruler
  • A pair of sharp scissors or rotary cutter
  • Cutting mat
  • Chalk or washable fabric pen

DIY Instructions
