No Sew Afghan
Fleece no sew projects are fun and stress releasing. From start to finish, this 48" x 63" afghan took me about 3 1/2 hours to complete. It is a surprise gift for someone at work. Yellow is her favorite color.
If you are interested in making one, go to this page and check out the more detailed instructions.
I wanted the afghan to be large enough to snuggle under while watching TV or reading a book. I purchased 1 3/4 yds each of a print and a coordinating solid color. If you are making it for a small child, adjust the size to fit.
I laid my pieces of fabric on the bed and pinned the 2 together. Then I trimmed away the fabric finished edges making both pieces of fabric the same size.
Just follow the photos....
At all 4 corners, cut out a 4" square of fabric if making a 4" fringe.
I start by tying several strips on each corner to hold everything in place. Make the double knots secure, but not tight.
I also kept my ruler close by to occasionally check the 4" length of the strips I was cutting. Remember it doesn't need to be exact.
I got so excited about the success of this project that I made one for my daughter.
Maybe I need to make myself one too!
