How Do You Make a Tie Fleece Blanket?

To make a tie fleece blanket, obtain two pieces of fleece that measure 2 yards each. Cut a 56-inch-by-70-inch rectangle from each piece, and then lay the fleece so that the rough sides are together. Cut a 6-inch square from each corner of the fleece. Make the fringe by cutting 6 inches into the fleece at 1-inch intervals around the outside of both layers. Knot the fringes together to complete the blanket.

Make a matching tie fleece pillow using the same steps as the blanket. Start by cutting two 26-inch-by-26-inch pieces of fleece and placing them so that the rough sides are together. Cut a 5-inch square from each corner, and then cut 5 inches into the fleece at 1-inch intervals around the outside. Knot three of the sides together, insert a pillow form, and knot the fourth side so that the pillow is completely enclosed.

For a different knot style, cut the edge of the fleece into 4-inch strips that are 1.5 inches apart. Cut a 1-inch slit in the center at the top of each strip. Place the two pieces of fleece together, and insert the top strip of fleece into the slit on the bottom piece. Repeat until the blanket is complete.
