Fleece Blanket {DIY Gift}




I made this blanket for my nephew for Christmas. I’m sure there are one million tutorials on this.

Welcome to tutorial one million and one. Maybe there is one person left on this planet who hasn’t seen it yet.

Maybe just one? No?


Oh well. Here ya go anyway.




I purchased a panel of fleece from his favorite movie Cars. You can use any kind of fleece though. It doesn’t have to be a panel. Cut off the excess white. It really doesn’t matter if your line is super straight.




Cut 1 in. squares around all four edges. Put on a good TV show or movie because this next part takes forever. Your thumbs will be sore the next day. No doubt.




Tie each piece in knots. If you want to get super creative you can use two pieces of fleece on top of each other and tie them together. I just wanted a light blanket. And I didn’t want to spend a fortune. Cause let me tell ya… fleece cost’s a fortune.




And there you have it! A personalized gift, perfect for a birthday or Christmas. I made one for my husband in Texas Rangers fleece. He loves it. I love it too :)


Have you ever made one of these fleece blankets?
