What fabric can you use for a no sew blanket?
For this project, you can use flannel or fleece. There are tradeoffs for each, so it is completely personal preference. The fleece is thicker and doesn’t have as sharply detailed designs but it won’t fray like flannel.
Can you use cotton for a no sew blanket?
Things You’ll Need
So you want to make a cotton blanket, but you don’t know how to sew and don’t own a sewing machine. Don’t give up on the project, because you will still be able to do it without sewing skills or a sewing machine. You just need a few items and the skills to cut a straight line and operate an iron.
Do you wash fleece before making a tie blanket?
Step 1: Prepare the Fabric
(Note: Fleece fabric will shrink when dried; therefore, drying the fabrics before the blanket is made is beneficial. Wash in luke-warm water, and dry on low heat.)
