One important tip about sewing scissors is to only use sewing scissors on material or thread. Never cut paper or anything else with your sewing scissors. This will dull them quickly and they won't cut material well or last long.

No Sew Fleece Blanket Instructions

This is a great project that doesn't involve sewing! You can make these different sizes, from a no-sew baby blanket to a no-sew adult size blanket.

You will need:
2 different pieces of fleece, each 1 yard (If you'd like to make it bigger or smaller, that is okay, just keep your two pieces of fleece the same size.)
Sewing scissors
Yard stick or plastic ruler
Lay both pieces of fleece down on table one on top of the other, wrong sides together. Smooth out fleece so it lays flat. Cut a 3 inch square from each corner.

Using a yard stick or ruler, measure 3 inches from the edges, even with your square, and cut a fringe around the edges.

Tie the two fringes, top and bottom, to each other in a double knot all the way around your blanket.
