So my oldest daughter wants to make her boyfriend a blanket for Valentine’s Day. A fleece no sew tie one. She wants to make it large enough to cover the foot of his bed, a queen size bed. I told her that it would be a bit of a pain with one so large, but she wanted to do it, and she did. I was actually quite impressed with how fast she got it done too. I think the whole blanket took her an hour or so. Any how, while trying to convince her not to do a tie blanket, I started searching for self binding blanket tutorials for her. I think these blankets turn out so cute and well they are easy to make. I love that you can use coordinating fabrics for some really cute looks as well. I found so many great tutorials and cute blankets that I thought I would share. Out tutorial is below the gallery – Enjoy and please share your creations with us, we love to see them!
