Quick & Easy Handmade Gift Idea: Fleece Throws

Fleece Throw Tutorial from Craft Quickies

My son is obsessed with cozy blankets and he’s obsessed with Lightning McQueen, so I decided that I should combine those two obsessions and make him a simple, no-sew blanket as a Christmas gift.  I just decided this today, and I whipped it out in a flash during nap time.  This would be a perfect gift for you to make for anyone on your gift list.  Kids, adults, girlfriends, siblings, ANYONE!  It would a great wedding gift as well!  Fleece throws for everyone!  HOORAY!  Ok, calming down now…  😉

I used a yard of this fabulously tacky Lightning McQueen fleece that I spotted at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores, but I’m sure you could find something much classier.  I know that JoAnns has a lot of sales going on right now, including a sale on their No-Sew Fleece Blanket kits, so head on over and grab one while you can!
Fleece Throw 2 Now, how do you go about making this blanket?  It’s a piece of cake!
Fleece Throw 1 First you trim the edges of the fleece if you need to.
Fleece Throw 3 Next you cut a square off of each corner of your blanket.  I think that mine were about six inches by six inches.
Fleece Throw 4 Now you cut strips.  Mine were about a inch and a half wide.
Fleece Throw 5 Time to tie your strips off.  While tying they can get a bit tight, so you may have to tug them apart a bit.  Don’t worry, the fleece can handle it.
Fleece Throw Final That’s it!  You’re done!  So go wrap it up or snuggle up in your brand new fleece throws!  Happy Holidays!
