    Fell in love with these blankets!

    Advertisements
    Got the idea to start making these when I saw it at my friend's house. So soft and warms you up fast. The two pink ones I made for my friend's baby that will be arriving in a month! Camo one was for fun and the wolf one is for my boyfriend He called me a grandma for making them but said he wanted one haha. Planning on sending it to him for his birthday coming up. They're no-sew blankets and easy to make. Sorry if the pictures are big. Still trying to learn how to resize. Looking for some new hobbies as well. Any suggestions?

    I wish I could do crafty things like that. If I tried, it wouldn't end up square

    Tie-together blankets are so much fun! DH loves the ones I made too haha. We even made some for the dogs.

    That's what I thought to but it's really easy to do once you finish the measuring and cutting. I messed up a few times with the blankets but you can't notice when it's all finished haha.

    So easy. Get equal amounts of fabric of each pattern/color (if you are doing a 2 pattern/color combo). Than pin them every so often all the way around than go to town cutting the strips. Besides, not perfect is what makes them more special.

    Never thought of pinning them. Going to try that next time.

    For me that keeps the cuts at the same length, same spacing etc. Just a personal preference ya know?

    Yeah it's a great idea. I've just been using a ruler to measure the spacing and then cutting them. The length is where I really keep having a problem. Luckily, you can't really notice that part once it's all done Once the knots are all done I go back and trim them to make them even too

    I love those blankets but I've never made one because I like HUGE blankets (I use a king size blanket for pretty much everything) and I didn't think they could be made that big.
