Star Wars Fleece Tie Blanket

Make your own Star Wars fleece tie blanket. Fleece tie blankets are very popular, and now you can choose your favorite Star Wars fleece fabric and make your own blanket in two hours or less! This material can be bulky, yet soft. Fleece is affordable and easy to work with. It is highly breathable in that air is permitted to pass through it. In addition, it is soft, comfortable, and durable. Best of all, blankets made with it are snuggly and warm. The following are some general step-by-step guidelines to follow as you make your fleece tie blanket:

Star Wars Fleece Tie Blanket Directions

Determine the size of the blanket you want to have. Fleece is generally 60 inches wide. I like to use a length of about 2 ½ yards. This makes the blanket a good comfortable size.

Using a coordinating color, add a second swatch of fleece to the other side of the blanket. After tying these two layers of fleece together, you will have a double layered blanket, which means double the snuggle power!

Match up your two pieces of fleece, and use safety pins to temporarily secure them together. This will prevent the layers from sliding apart unintentionally. You can remove these safety pins once you have finished tying the edges together.

Cut 5 x 5 inch squares out of each corner. This is done to prevent bunching of the material when the corners are tied. Then, form a line 5 inches in from the outer edge of the material. Mark it with tape or just lay a tape measure along this border as you work. Now, cut 1-inch wide strips through both layers of fleece, stopping when you get to the 5-inch border you just created. Only cut about 20 sets at a time, or you may have difficulty keeping the strips matched up.

Tie the 1-inch strips of the first layer to the 1-inch strips of second layer. You can do this with a square knot or just a basic double knot, whichever you prefer. Tie these strips all the way around the edges of the blanket.

Once you have tied the strips together all the way around the blanket’s edge, you are finished. It was that simple! So, pop your popcorn, pick out your favorite movie, and enjoy your new blanket.

Star Wars Fleece Tie Blanket Conclusion

Fleece tie blankets make wonderful gifts for friends and family. Star Wars is quite popular in my family, so I chose to make a Star Wars blanket. However, you can use another pattern or design.

As for cleaning the blanket, I like to machine wash it with cold water and dry it on a gentle setting. This will prevent color fading, and keep your blanket in good condition.
