Have always wanted to make one and got the opportunity yesterday. I had 2 medium sized Tenn Vols panels. You know the kind you get at Wally World where they just cut a panel, and decided now would be a good time to make one. It turned out pretty good, so I thought I would post the directions.
Items needed: 2 pieces of fleece, one for the front and one for the back. (2) 1 yard pieces makes a small child sized blanket and (2)2 yard pieces makes a good throw.
Cardboard Cut 5 inches square
Cut the selvedged sides off of the fleece. (That's the edge they sew around it to keep it from fraying)
Lay your 2 pieces together, one on top of the other, wrong sides together, on a flat surface.
Lay the cardboard square on any corner, mark it and cut it out.
Do this on all 4 corners. Throw away pieces.
Keeping the fleece top and bottom flat, use a tape measure and mark at 1 inch intervals around all 4 edges.
After you mark them, cut each 1 inch strip 5 inches up and flip or fold them up as you cut each one. Laying them over the fleece, so they don't get in the way.
After curtting each 1 inch strip start knotting the cut srips together in a double knot, pulling tightly. You will get small puckers as you do this but it adds to the look of the fleece.
Takes about an hour and a half from start to finish.
Great gift and easy to make.
