Simple Blanket With Fringe Craft
6th of June 2017
Nothing says comfort like a cozy blanket made especially for you! Making this no-sew blanket is as easy as 1-2-3. Combine your favorite colors to create unique blankets for your children to snuggle up with.
What You Will Need:
- Crochet Hook
- Clothes Pins
- Fleece Fabric
- Assorted Yarn
Your Work Space:
Be sure and choose a comfortable spot to create your blanket. Since there is no mess you can easily spread out your craft supplies on the coffee table or on the couch. For our blanket, we choose a combination of bright and soft colors for the fringe. Keep in mind that you can also use chunky yarn for a fluffier effect. Make it your own!
Start at the corner of your fleece blanket and fold along the edge about 1 inch. Hold the fold in place using clothes pins. Do this along the entire edge of the blanket.
Make small cuts along the fold of the blanket about 1/2 inch long and 1-2 inches apart.
Choose your favorite yarn and cut 10-inch strips. This will become the fringe that will be attached along the edge of the blanket. You will need to cut approximately 4 strips per hole.
Gather all four strips of yarn and fold them in half. Using a crochet hook, pull the looped end through the first hole. Pull the ends of the yarn through the loop and tighten into a knot. Repeat this step along the entire edge of the blanket.
Mix It Up
Remember to have fun with your blanket. Using an assortment of colors can add a cheerful characteristic. The important thing is that you make it your own.
