My nephew will soon move from his crib to his big boy bed! What a big step! I wanted to be the best auntie of course and make his blanket for his bed. I found a ton of tutorials on Pinterest that were a huge help. It's actually really easy!

Step 1: Layout your fleece on top of each other. Smooth out wrinkles and match up edges as best you can. Don't pull too much as fleece has a bit of stretch to it.
Step 2: Trim edges.
Step 3: Using a 4 x 4 square template, place on corner and cut out. Do this on all four corners.
Step 4: Start cutting a four inch strip along the edge. I used 1 1/4 inch strips.
Step 5: After you cut the four inch strips, fold them up.
Step 6: Carefully make a small slit on the fold. This is your hole for 'tying', so the smaller the better.
Step 7: Turn the strip up & pull down inside, through the slit.
Step 8: Tug gently to make it tight.
Step 9: Continue down the row with each strip.
Step 10: Wrap yourself in it and enjoy!
with the holidays approaching what a great gift this would be. Here are the blankets I made for my nephews. Each took me a couple of hours!
