Have you seen these blankets before? They're fantastic!!
I wish I could take credit for them, but they're actually the project of my
9 year old niece, Kaylee. She's so crafty. I see big things in her future!~
And they're very easy to make. No sewing required!
Kaylee gave me step-by-step instructions on how to make them...
1. Buy 2 yards of 2 colors of coordinating fleece.
Spread them out on each other with the right sides facing out.
2. Trim off selvage edge of both pieces so that they're the exact same size.
Then cut a 6" square out of each corner.
3. Start making 6" cuts every inch, all the way around on all 4 sides.
It helps to lay a ruler 6 inches from the edge and just cut to the ruler.
4. Begin tying all strips.
Keeping both fabrics together, loop the tab to the right & then over itself.
Come back through the hole & pull straight down.
They would make great house warming gifts or baby blankets.
(For kids' blankets, Kaylee used 1.5 yards instead of 2.
So cute & cozy!
Thanks Kaylee for our wonderful blankets
and for teaching us how to make them!
