Fleece Seahawks Blanket

Have you ever been really focused on playing photographer, and then someone comes along and sneaks not only into the picture but inside the prop? Well... That's what happened to me several times today, but I didn't mind. He's a sweetie pie... Anyhoo...

So you know every December you're scrambling to hurry up and finish handmade Christmas gifts for friends and family?  I finished up a crochet Christmas gift for a friend the morning of Christmas. We are NOT doing that in 2016! Oh no! We are getting started right now in January! This year, I've joined some really crafty bloggers for the Handmade Christmas Blog Hop, and each month we will share a new gift idea with you. So Millie at 2 Crochet Hooks is kicking off the hop with a No-Sew Fleece Blankets, and with our blog hop, each member is making their own version of the handmade gift of the month. So you'll have multiple sources of inspiration for the same gift idea.

For my No-Sew Fleece Blanket, I used Seattle Seahawks fleece fabric, of course! Since it's often chilly here, I made my blanket double sided. I used two different Seahawks fabrics. I used a yard and a half of each fabric.

Since this is a no-sew blanket, you put the two pieces of fleece together and cut fringe around the fleece and tie them together. I cut my fringe about 1.5 inches wide and 5 inches long. Before you do that, you need to cut a 5 by 5 square from each corner. 

So that's my no-sew fleece blanket. Check out the rest of the Handmade Christmas gift ideas at the link up below!
