Not Good At Sewing? Here’s a Blanket You Can DIY!

Have you always wanted to be able to make a blanket for either yourself or someone else but just don’t know how or have no interest in sewing?  Or do you have kids that you want an easy DIY to do with them?

Then this post is for you!

(Note, this post contains Amazon affiliate links… which I would really appreciate if you use if you are wanting to buy these items!)

Several stores such as Amazon, JoAnn Fabrics, and even (sometimes) Walmart sell No-Sew Fleece Throw Kits.  This is a picture of one I made a few years back for my brother:

It’s pretty much the easiest thing you could ever make and still has a fantastic final product.  Basically, it is a large fleece blanket that has pre-marked lines around the edges showing you where to cut. Then you cut little strips and tie the strips together! Easy-peasy!  You can just do a regular knot or there are lots of fancy knots you can find instructions for online.

Some great ones to consider from Amazon:

The one I made for my brother (pic above) can be found on Amazon here: Star Trek The Original Series Enterprise, Captain Kirk, and Spock No Sew Fleece Throw Kit

Wonder Woman No Sew Throw Fleece Kit

And finally…

These are just a few that I like, but seriously there are SO MANY!! And they aren’t all geeky, there are lots that are simple colors or that are Disney or dogs, or pretty much anything.

Have fun, and if you make one send me a pic! 🙂  Have a great day!
