For My Patriot's Fan Living in Ram's Territory
My son wanted a no sew fleece blanket and matching pillow for camping. I started with 2 yards each, of two colors of 60 inch wide fleece. I lined up the two pieces, wrong sides together and cut strips about 2 inches wide and 5 inches long, all the way around. Then, I took the top strip and double knotted it with the matching bottom strip. I cut out the squares at the corners. Viola!
The pillow was 1/2 yard of 60 inch wide fleece. I sewed three sides of the rectangle and fringed all the way around. The pillow case is smaller than a standard pillow. So I took an old one and cut it, removed stuffing and re-sewed the seam to fit the case.
