Are you searching for a way to keep your favorite fleece blanket properly? Well, then you are at the right place. We are going to give you some tips on how to wash and tie a fleece blanket. Fleece blankets are a very cozy option on a cold day.

They are used in body oils, hair products, food, and spills, and if you don’t wash them properly, they will pill and quickly lose their shape. So, here are specific ways through which you can keep your fleece blanket cleanly and properly. 

How to Wash a Fleece Blanket?         

Pre-Treat Stains

Treat stains or soiled spots with a drop of dishwashing liquid. Allow the liquid to soak into the stain for 10 minutes. Then blot away as much of the soap as possible with a paper towel to lift the stain. Do not rub the stain because you may spread it or press it deeper into the fabric.

Wash

Place the blankets in your washing machine. To prevent abrasion with other clothes, it is best to wash fleece items together, combining colors. Before you begin, set the washer on the gentle cycle. Stronger washing cycles may cause the fleece to form knots.

Use only warm, not hot, water on the fleece. Add laundry detergent to the washing machine, but do not use a laundry detergent that contains bleach. It’s also a good idea to avoid fabric softeners when washing fleece because they will damage the water-repellent finish applied to many fleece items during manufacturing.

Dry

Tumble dry fleece blankets on the gentle cycle with low heat. Never use a high heat setting on fleece blankets, as it will damage the fabric. Remove the blankets immediately after the dryer stops and fold them to prevent wrinkles. If the blankets are too fluffy, lay them on a flat surface and press them down with your hands.

Make sure to never iron fleece blankets. Irons will melt the synthetic fabric and leave marks on the fleece. If you can and weather permits, consider changing your fleece blankets outdoors to dry for a fresh smell.

Store

If you are storing your fleece blankets after washing them, fold them neatly and place a scented dryer sheet inside the last fold. It will keep the blanket fresh while it will be stored in the closet.

Now, you know how to wash and tie a fleece blanket, let’s move to the other half of this article to tie a fleece blanket.

How To Tie a Fleece Blanket?

Making a fleece blanket with a tied fringe edge is an easy no-sew project, especially for kids and teens. These inexpensive blankets are perfect for gifts or charity projects.

Whether you’ve purchased a kit or want to start with a few pieces of fabric, follow these directions to make a warm, no-sew tie blanket out of two pieces of fleece.

Moreover, you can use the instructions to make your blanket of any size. The techniques are all the same, just the fabric size changes. You can use the same method to make a no-sew pillow.

This blanket is an appropriate project for ages eight years and up. It will take only about 30 minutes from start to finish.

What You’ll Need?

  • Rotary cutter
  • Cutting ruler
  • Cutting mat
  • Ruler
  • Pen or pencil
  • Scissors
  • One 1/2-yard anti-pill fleece

Instructions

Cutting the Materials

When you purchase fleece by the yard, it almost always needs to be trimmed and straightened. At the very least, you need to cut off the selvage edge.

Start by laying the fleece piece that will be the back of your blanket, right side down, on your work surface. It works best on a large area of the floor. Smooth out the piece of fleece with your hands.

Now, lay the fleece piece that will be the front of your blanket, right side up, on top of the first piece of fleece. Again, smooth out the piece of fleece, so it lies flat.

Cut through both pieces of fleece, trimming it to whatever size you want your blanket to be, and squaring up the edges. The cuts do not have to be perfectly even, but they should be relatively straight. Keep in mind that the finished blanket will appear about 10 to 12 inches smaller than the size you cut because of the fringe.

Measure and Cut the Blanket Corners

Measure a square at each corner that is the same length as what you want the fringe to be. The sample fringe is about 6 inches long, so the square is 6 inches from each side in the corner. You can adjust this if you’d like, starting with a square that is anywhere from 4 inches to 8 inches.

If you are using a rotary cutter, align the cutting ruler and cut the square. Also, If you are using a pencil and scissors, mark the lines for the square. Cut out the square with scissors.

Repeat this for each corner. Make sure that you cut through both layers of the fleece. Try to cut as straight as possible, but don’t worry about the lines being perfectly even. Once they are tied together, you will never notice any differences.

Cut the Blanket Fringe

Next, start making the fringe along each edge, cutting through both thicknesses of fleece. Each strip should be the same length as your starter square and anywhere from 1 inch to 2 inches wide. The sample is 6 inches long and 2 inches wide.

If you’re using a rotary cutter, use the ruler to measure and cut the strips, working around the entire blanket.

If you’re using scissors, measure and mark all the fringe lines first. Then go back and cut the marked lines. It will help keep the cuts straight.

Depending on your blanket’s size, the fringe cuts may not come out even on their own. You don’t want a tiny or huge strip at the end. To fix this, when you get about 18 inches from one end, measure how much is left to mark or cut. If the strips’ width doesn’t go into that length evenly, adjust the strips’ width slightly.

For example, if you have about 15.5 inches left, start making the fringe just a tiny bit narrower. Measure again after a few strips to be sure that the fabric divides evenly now.

Tying the Fringe

To attach the top piece of fleece to the bottom part of fleece, tie the fringe together. Hold a set of fringe pieces (a back and front piece), and tie a square knot.

Tie each knot, so it is tight, but try not to pull at the fabric too much.

Continue tying the pieces of fleece together until you have worked your way all around the fleece blanket. Now the fleece blanket is washed and tied.
