Cute craft to do with your kid

Chloe and I made this cute blanket. To do this project you will just need two coordinating pieces of fleece, each measuring 5' x 3'.

Holding the two pieces together (right sides facing away from each other), cut out a 7" square from each of the four corners of the fleece sandwich.

Along the uncut edges of the fleece, between where you cut the squares out, still holding the two pieces together, you will cut the blanket fringe. The fringe strips should be about 1" wide and cut about 7" into the blanket, so that the interior cut end of the fringe aligns with the interior edge of the square you just cut out.

Tie a knot in each of the fringe pairs and you're done!

Fun and sweet! My mother-in-law had made these for my nieces and nephews and they're crazy about them. :)
