My 11 Tips & Observations to Make a No-Sew Fleece Blanket

. at . Leave a comment

No-sew blankets are easy and quick to make especially when it’s a baby-sized blanket. I bought one yard of  both the plain and doggy-covered material. After tying it, the blanket turned out to be 29″ x 50″.

I LOVE the bright blue of this blanket. If it were bigger, I would have been tempted to keep it for myself.

Suggested Materials Needed . . . 

  • Newborn: 36″ X 24″  –  makes a great size for car seats
  • Baby/Toddler: 1 to 1 1/2 yards
  • Child: 1 3/4 yards
  • Teen/Adult: 2 yards

Sewing Directions and Ideas . . .

 My 11 Tips and Observations.

  1. Consider the size the blanket will end up after cutting the fringe. My fringe was 4 inches. So that means my blanket was 8 inches smaller on each side.
  2. I initially tied every other fringe. That way I was able to sit with the blanket in my lap and finish it up in a chair instead of on floor.
  3. Wash material before tying it.
  4. The narrow ends were not as stretchy so I could have cut the fringe longer as said by this site (#4). These fringes ended up 1/4th shorter. But it doesn’t really matter to the overall look.
  5. I tied mine as double knots. So that made the fringe shorter.
  6. I cut each fringe 4 inches. I think they are long enough.
  7. I cut out a 4 inch square in each corner.
  8. My blanket didn’t line up exactly on one long end. It turned out it didn’t matter.
  9. Make sure both fleece materials are the same weight
  10. Also use fleece that doesn’t tear when tying. The lady at the sewing counter told me this.
  11. Use anti-pill fleece.
