...here is my really easy tutorial for making a new-sew fleece blanket. I made this one about a week and a half ago as a gift for my favorite girl, my cousin Jennie. She is five, and has been my little buddy since the day she was born.
You will need:
1.5 yards each of two complimentary fleeces
a pair of good fabric scissors
a piece of scrap cardboard
1. Lay out your two pieces of fabric with the "good" side of the fleece facing out on both sides. You'll be able to tell what the "good" side is based on the sharpness of the image (if there is one) and the feel of the fleece.
2. Use a piece of cardboard (I used a piece of a cereal box) to make a template for cutting your strips. Mine was 1" by 4", which is pretty standard for these blankets.
