Equipment

  • 2 Pieces of fleece fabric both 2 yards
  • Scissors
  • Ruler or Tape Measure

Instructions

  • First, lay both of your fleece pieces on top of each other. Cut off the selvage edge.
  • That's the edge that isn't cut. Even out each piece of fabric, cutting together so they are the same size.
  • Keeping both pieces of fabric together, measure a 7" square in each corner and cut out. Using a tape measure, lay it across the edge of the fabric.
  • Cut the strips, 1" wide and 7" long, making sure to cut both pieces of fabric at the same time.
  • Begin to knot the pieces of fabric. Any method of knotting is fine to fleece tie but double knotting is what I do.
  • Just make sure you do the exact same knot so they are uniform. I like to fold the tassels up and around to form a knot.
  • If necessary, trim the ends of the tassels. Enjoy!

Notes

I chose two separate colors, but you can make this with the same color fleeces. The fleece was from Joanns and was their standard Blizzard Fleece but you can get this from any craft store.
Most fleece fabric is around 58" wide and this is a good size. We used 2 yards but you can use 1.5 yards for a smaller blanket.
