How to Make a No Sew Double Sided Fleece Tie Blanket

SEP 27, 2016 updated Aug 3, 2021

What’s the perfect no-sew project for cold weather AND tailgating? Double sided fleece blankets. This beginner level project can be made in under 30 minutes using two yards of Spoonflower’s Fleece and a pair of scissors. Personalize your blanket to your teams’ colors from our Marketplace of over 350,000 designs or design your own, and get cuddled up this season. 

For our blanket, we decided to use this geometric design by classycassie to show our team spirit (any Seahawks fans out there?)


Step 1: Stack two yards of fleece, wrong sides facing

Design featured here is Seattle Football by nicoledobbins

Step 2: Trim selvage using a rotary blade and straight edge


Step 3: Cut 1″ x 3″ strips across the short side of the fabrics.

continue cutting across the entire short side. Repeat across the opposite short side of the fabric.


Step 4: With scissors, snip a small hole at the top center of each strip

don’t make the hole too large or there will be gapping when you pull the strips through the hole


Step 5: Strip by strip, bring both layers of fabric through from the bottom of the hole. Repeat on the opposite side.


Step 6: Repeat the above steps for the long sides of the blanket.

Step 7: Oh wait… that’s it? The blanket’s done? Dang! That was easy.

A one sided blanket more your style? We’ve got a tutorial for that, too!
