Start off by choosing two different colors of fleece, usually a print and a coordinating solid. I recommend 2.5 yards of each, the one I’m going to show you I only used 2 yards of fabric, big enough to cover your lap while watching TV.
Find an area or table in your home large enough to lay the fabric out flat. Lay the solid out first, I’m using a light pink. Next lay the printed fabric on top. Try your best to line all the edges up, most likely some trimming will be needed. It doesn’t have to be perfect!
Once all the trimming is finished, at each corner cut out a 5x5 inch square. If you’d like more fringe on the ends cut out a 8x8 inch square or larger instead.
Once all 4 corners are cut, discard the square pieces (or save for another project).
Now the fringe! Cut strips about 1 inch or less thick and 5 inches into the blanket (or 8 inches depending on how big the corners are), starting at the cut out corner. Make sure you cut through both layers of fleece. Once the first side is finished you can start tying them off.
Take a strip, both layers of fabric and it off like your tying a balloon.
I found an easy to follow demo here.
