How to Make a No-Sew Tie Blanket: A Simple DIY Guide

How to Make a No-Sew Tie Blanket: A Simple DIY Guide

Creating a no-sew tie blanket is an excellent project for anyone looking to make a cozy, personalized gift or an addition to their home décor without needing any knitting or sewing skills.

This easy craft is not only fun but also provides a perfect way to unwind, much like the comforting embrace of a your mattress at the end of a long day.

What You Need to Make a No-Sew Tie Blanket

Before you start, gather the following supplies:

How to Make a Tie Blanket No-Sew

Creating a no-sew tie blanket is a simple, enjoyable project that allows you to craft a personalized and cozy item without any need for knitting or sewing skills. Here’s a detailed step-by-step guide to making your own no-sew tie blanket:

Materials Needed

Preparation

  1. Select Your Fleece: Pick two fleece fabrics that look good together. The ‘right’ sides (the side you want showing) of the fabric should face outward when the blanket is finished.

  2. Lay Out the Fabric: Place your two pieces of fleece on a flat surface, one on top of the other. Align all edges so they match up.

Cutting the Fabric

  1. Square the Edges: Ensure all edges are straight and even. Trim any misaligned edges so that both pieces of fabric are the same size.

  2. Cut Out the Corners: Remove a square from each corner of the stacked fabrics—typically, a 4x4 inch or 5x5 inch square. This prevents excess bulk in the corners when you tie the fringes.

  3. Cut the Fringes: Measure and cut 1-inch wide strips along each edge of the fabric, each fringe should be about 4-5 inches deep. Use the ruler to keep your fringes uniform, and cut through both layers of fleece at the same time.

Tying the Fringes

  1. Tie the Knots: Starting at one corner, take a pair of corresponding top and bottom fringes (one fringe from each layer) and tie them into a knot. You can use a simple square knot (right over left, then left over right) or any other knot that securely holds the layers together without being too tight.

  2. Continue Around the Blanket: Work your way around the blanket, tying each pair of fringes in the same manner. Ensure that each knot is consistent with the last to keep the edges looking neat and uniform.

This project is a great way to add a cozy layer to your living space, much like a Puffy Lux Mattress adds comfort to your sleep environment.

How to Tie a No-Sew Blanket

Tying a no-sew blanket involves a methodical approach to ensure each knot is secure and the blanket holds together well. Here’s how to effectively tie your no-sew blanket:

Effective Knotting Techniques

  1. Square Knots: This is the most common knot used for no-sew blankets. To tie a square knot, take a fringe pair, cross the left strip over the right strip and bring it under, then take what is now the left strip, cross it over the right, and bring it under again. Pull both ends to secure the knot.

  2. Loop Knots: An alternative is the loop knot, where you create a loop with one fringe, then pull the corresponding fringe from the other layer through this loop, and tighten.
