This is my kind of project. I can sew but when a project I like is a no sew project I'm happy with that.
2 pieces of polar fleece, I like to use two different patterns, one for the front and one for the back. For this blanket I used four yards all together (each side 2 yards) but you can use any size you want.
Scissors or one of those roller cutters
A tape measure or yard stick
A piece of paper
1. Start by trimming the salvage from your fleece
2. Next lay your two pieces of fabric on top of one another with the good sides facing out. If you look closely at the fleece one side will look more fuzzy than the other...that is the bad side. Those sides should be inside.
3. Make sure your two pieces of fleece line up, if not trim accordingly. Fleece is pretty forgiving and stretches easily when working with it so it doesn't have to be eactly perfect.

4. Next cut a 5x5 square from a piece of paper. Use this piece to cut out all four corners from your fleece. This is how it will look when finished.
5. Once all four corners are cut take your yard stick or tape measure and line it up from corner to corner. This allows you to get the same length of tassle cuts. If your blanket is longer than the yard stick then just move your stick along as you go.
6. Start cutting your tassles. Make each cut about an inch apart. Make sure you cut through both pieces of fabric. Do this on all four sides of the blanket.
7. Once all sides are given tassles, start tying them off. I start by doing every other one. Once that is done flip the blanket over and tie off the rest. Some people choose to do double knots and that is fine too. Just keep it mind that your tassles will be a bit shorter.
