Fleece Fringe-Tied Blankets

These are probably the easiest ever blankets to make – you’ve probably made them already.  But if you haven’t here’s a quick rundown.  Mine are 1 1/4 yards long, so the size is 60x45inches.  First you’ll want to cut off the selvedge edge – that’s the side of the fabric.  Sometime’s it’s white, but other times it blends in with your pattern – even if it blends in, cut it off – it curls and if you leave it on the blanket doesn’t look as nice.
Next cut your fringe.  I cut mine along the 45in edge only, but you can do all the way around if you want.  You just cut strips about 1 1/2 inches wide, 4 inches into the fabric.  But I didn’t measure each cut – you can eyeball it.  Then on each piece of fringe, tie a knot.  These are single-layer blankets so you don’t tie strips to other strips, just make a knot on itself.  Even kids can join the fun.
It’s pretty fun and super easy – a perfect project to do while you’re watching the Olympics! (I have a whole list of projects to do during my obessive Olympic watching – stay tuned to see how much I get done…)
