Fleece no sew blanket

So I finally made one of these no-sew blankets. Basically you take two pieces of fleece, cut strips on the side and tie them together. It wasn't too bad, and I'm sure it will be warm, but I don't think I'll ever make one again. I think I'd rather sew it... Anyway, here it is:
Finished blanket
Not bad, eh?
Whatcha doing?
Whatcha doing?
Not again...
Man, you stink. Why did I come over here?
Fine I'll stay here
Can I go now?
Zzzz...
Zzzz...

Absolutely adorable!

I made a small fleece lap blanket for my grandpa for Christmas, it took so long I didn't make a second one for my brother.
I'm only going to do that project one more time for our "travel" blanket. I just want to be able to undo the "sewing" to be able to sew on our travel patches.

Very cute. I've made these for my pups before - they adore them! You've inspired me to whip up a new one.

i love it! That's a really cool fleece print too. Maybe I'll have to make one too...I can't have too many blankets here in Chicago!

I think this is the first one of those blankets Ive seen that didn't have some god awful neon pattern on it haha. Nice job! I think you've inspired me too!

This is so nice. I have never seen a fleece pattern like this before.

these are all the rage at the local Joanns. I have never seen any in fabric that I have liked, but I absolutely love your zig zag patterned blanket. Where did you find it?

I actually didn't know how these blankets were made so appreciate your post about it. Your blanket looks great, love those colors and the cutie pie who's testing it out.

Look! It's a "dog in a blanket"! Hee hee :) No-sew projects like this is for lazy people who can't sew (like me), you're way too advanced for this (but it's still uber cute :>)

How funny - when I was buying fleece at Hancock's last weekend, the fabric shrew asked me if I was making one of these.

I'm with you though, I'd rather sew.
