One-Hour Fleece Blanket

One-Hour Fleece BlanketMaterials Needed
1 2/3 yard of 2 coordinating fleece prints and/or solids
Sharp fabric scissors or pinking shears - or rotary cutter, mat and ruler
Quilting or safety pins
Masking tape


1 - Lay one piece of fabric on your work surface with WRONG side up with selvages on the left and right. Lay the second piece of fabric RIGHT side up on top of the first, with the selvages on the top and bottom. This will stabilize your blanket.

2 - Remove selvages and trim fabric to a 58" square. Use a few pins to hold the pieces together. Place masking tape on all sides of the top piece of fleece, four inches from the edge. Cut fringe at one inch intervals, using the masking tape as a guide. You may use scissors, pinking shears, or your rotary cutter and mat.

3 - Tie the top and bottom layers in a knot at each fringe. At the corners, cross over the fringe so the bottom right connects to the top left, etc.

The same technique can be used to make a matching pillow. Or, use the same measuring and cutting technique to make an easy single-layer blanket!
