Easy No Sew Fleece Tie Blanket – Instructions plus a step-by-step YouTube Video tutorial. Turn this cute project into a homemade Christmas Gift using our Fleece Navidad gift tag and a discounted Photo Fleece Blanket. Enjoy!
I really think I have creative ideas but I don’t consider myself artistic… First, I lack time. Second, I lack follow-through. Third, I just have a large family. Other things come before crafting!
One item I can say that was VERY easy and CHEAP to make was a No Sew Fleece Tie Blanket.
This craft was also enjoyable for the kids. it was a unique way to give a handmade gift to grandparents – some of the grandparents who have everything! They didn’t have this. And the kids grow, so with my Photo Fleece Blanket, the photo can be adjusted to the current year. Grandma might end up with 18 years of blankets.
No Sew Fleece Blanket Instructions
The steps for making this blanket are simple. It was one of the easiest crafts I ever did. Plus, I don’t sew, so no machine was required!
No Sew Fleece Blanket Supplies
- 1 square Fleece Blanket (60″ x 60″ is what I used)
- 1 Additional Square Fleece Blanket (cut to the same size)
- Square 4″ x 4″ template or index card
- Rotary Cutter
- Measuring Tape
I like making the fleece blankets coordinating but not the same. I got a solid pink and a cupcake pattern. You can mix up prints too.
No Sew Fleece Blanket Directions
This is the best way to tie no sew fleece blanket together.
First, lay down your first square fleece
Second, lay your second square fleece lined up on top. Make sure all edges line up. Trim where needed.
Cut a 4 inch by 4 inch square on each corner. Use your template if needed.
Next, cut strips about every two finger lengths (an inch and a half – give or take) along the edges. Cut about 4 inches in length.
Once strips are cut along all 4 sides of the blanket, choose a corner. Tie the right bottom of one side with the left top strip of the other side of the blanket. Begin tying all strips in a double knot.
Repeat along all four edges/side until your no-sew fleece blanket is complete!
Ta-da! You are done with your easy No Sew Fleece Blanket. Makes a great gift!

Photo Fleece Blankets
This can also be done with photo blankets. We found a Photo Fleece Blanket Sale on Shutterfly, and followed the exact same steps when creating a blanket for my mom!
THIS is your Christmas Gift!.. and Mother’s Day… and Father’s Day… and so on!
A few things to keep in mind. Shutterfly blankets come in three sizes. 30 x 40, 40 x 60, and 60 x 80. So whichever blanket you order form Shutterfly, make sure your backing blanket is cut the same size. If you have a craft store do this, then you can ask them to cut it to size. Otherwise purchase it larger and when your Photo Fleece Blanket arrives in the mail, you cut down your backing blanket to size.
If you want to be detailed about your backing fabric, head to Fabric.com. There are some of the cutest Discounted Fleece Fabric Patterns on the website. Either find one that coordinates with your photo fleece blanket or mix it up and personalize something to your gift recipient (i.e. unicorns, gardening, astronomy, etc.)
