Sorry there haven’t been many posts the past few days. I have been sick/am sick with a nasty flu bug and haven’t done much of anything.
I thought today I would make something very simple.
If you’ve never tried a knotted fleece blanket before, they are quick and easy to make and make great gifts. You can make them any size or shape, you could even make a round one if you wanted!
I remember making a bunch of these as gifts years ago when I was still working at a fabric store!
I made mine stroller size. It ended up being 24 x 38 inches.
All I needed was a fleece blanket which I bought at the dollar store for only $3.00 and some scissors! Looking at the width of some of the cuts, I probably also should have used my tape measure!
I began by cutting off the finished edges all around the blanket. I folded it in half to make two pieces, a top and a bottom, and rounded the corners.
I placed the two pieces together, wrong sides together, right sides facing out.
Then I started to cut the slits… all the way around the blanket. I cut them about 1 inch wide and 4 inches long.
Once they were all cut I started knotting them, attaching the top layer to the bottom.
And I continued knotting all the way around until all the slits were tied.
And I ended up with a cute, warm Knotted Fleece Stroller Blanket! Another project to the “baby collection” I’ve started for impending grandparenthood lol!
