These fleece fringe blankets are so popular, especially around this time of year when the temperature is dropping and it’s time to bust out the blanket stash. Personally, I love to make these blankets for friends and family members – they are a lot less time-consuming than crocheting an afghan or quilting a quilt. I feel like you can never have enough of these comfy, cozy blankets! I always bring out a basket of blankets into the living room once October hits, and without fail there are a few of these inside.
Today’s tutorial isn’t a new craft idea – as I’ve already pointed out, we all have about a dozen of these around the house somewhere – but a new, easier method to make these blankets. I love this little hack! Basically, instead of using scissors to meticulously cut each and ever strip, only to end up with uneven edges and a wonky blanket, you use a cutting mat to fold over the edge and then quickly slice down the line with a rotary cutter! How easy is that?! Watch and see how it’s done in teh video below from our friends over at Pacific Fabrics!
