Fleece Navidad (Making Fleece Blankets)

Want to make fleece blankets for children in hospitals and our Homeless Outreach initiative? It’s easy. Here is a list of what you’ll need and instructions:

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • 5-1/2 yds. fleece fabric
  • Scissors or rotary cutter & mat
  • Tape measure

DIRECTIONS:

Project tip: Cut both layers of fleece at the same time.

  1. From each piece of fleece, cut 56” x 70” rectangle.
  2. Place fleece rectangles wrong sides together.
  3. Cut out one 7” square from each corner of both fleece pieces.
  4. To make the fringe, cut 7” into fleece at 1” intervals around all sides of both top and bottom.
  5. Knot fringed pieces together around entire blanket, using 1 strand from the front fabric layer and 1 strand from the back fabric layer.

Keep an eye out for coupons to use at craft stores. Joann’s Fabrics also had kits you can purchase.
