This no-sew blanket is not only super-cute, but your pregnant pal will be touched that it was crafted by you.

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 m polar fleece (1 m each of two colours, if desired)
  •  3 m assorted ribbons
  •  large flat surface
  • scissors


1. Lay two pieces of polar fleece on top of each other and cut to 1 m x 1.25 m. Pin with large quilting pins. Cut 10 cm squares out at each corner.

2. Cut fringe 10 cm deep by 2.5 cm wide around all edges of the fabric. Be sure to cut through both layers at the same time.

3. Cut ribbon into 20-cm long strands.

4. Working your way around the blanket, tie the pieces of fringe together in a knot. Tie a piece of ribbon around every other knot.
