If you are planning to make a fleece blanket for yourself, a friend, or a charity, forget the boring tie blanket and make the Braided-Edge Fleece Blanket DIY instead! This DIY project is simple, requiring only basic sewing, and looks way cooler than the stereotypical tie blanket. While tie blankets have a very casual, unrefined look to them, the braided fleece blanket looks like it came from a store. The braided edge creates a lovely, finished border for the blanket and adds a stylishness that tie blankets just don't have.

Can a blanket be any easier? I am always seeing fleece go on sale. I have 2 dogs and 1 cat and they tend to levitate to the fleece throws around the house. This is a cool way to make a few just for them and make them a little fancy.

OMG! Is Maggie a genius or what? I love fleece and any opportunity I can have to use it I will jump all over this. I think I just found my next bulk gift I make for the family. Everyone is getting a fleece blanket now and it will be so special with the braided edge. Thanks, Maggie.

I love the edging on this blanket! The ties on traditional tie blankets tend to bother me, so this might be the best alternative next time I make one.

Definitely going to have to try this DIY fleece blanket! I also love the purple and black pattern here.
