Today I am going to share a quick and easy project almost anyone can do with very few tools – the no sew fleece blanket. The entire project takes less than an hour from start to finish. Plus, if you can get your fabric on sale you can make this project very inexpensively!

- Two pieces of coordinating fleece fabric
- Rotary cutter and mat (or scissors)
- Clear ruler with guides (or a regular ruler)
Step Five: Find yourself a comfy spot on the couch, put on your favorite show or movie, and get tying! You are going to double knot the strips together. Starting at one edge where you cut your square, take one strip from the top fabric and the matching one from the other fabric underneath and tie a knot.
After first knot.
Then you will tie a second knot. This will be what holds your two fabrics together.
Continue around until the whole blanket is tied. This seems like a long process, but for my blanket, it took me about 15 minutes total. (The time consuming part of this project is cutting all the strips. You can cut your time in half by having a rotary cutter, mat and ruler.)
These blankets hold up very well to washing. Since it is fleece your strips don’t fray even with repeated washings. These blankets make great gifts. Make the blanket a little smaller for a baby gift, or a little larger for a grown up! I think every member of my family has one now!
