Fleece blankets provide a great deal of warmth, and if you need an extra thick blanket, you can make one that is double-sided. Synthetic fleece, made mainly from polyester fibres, is known for its softness, warmth and moisture wicking properties. Synthetic fleece also offers benefits for sewers because it is durable and does not fray. You can actually use single layer fleece without adding a seam finish, but you will need to use a finishing stitch when completing this double-sided fleece blanket.

Things you need

  • 2 pieces of fleece fabric, each 1.5 m by 1.8 m (5 feet by 6 feet)
  • Straight pins
  • Scissors
  • Threaded sewing machine or serger

  1. 1

    Spread the pieces of fleece out, one on top of the other, lining up the sides and ends. Pin the pieces together to keep the edges aligned.

  2. 2

    Round the corners by trimming the points off of the fleece with scissors. If any of the cut ends do not line up, trim off the excess fabric.

  3. 3

    Set your sewing machine on a wide finishing stitch like a blanket or zigzag stitch. Place the two layers of fabric under the presser foot, making sure the edges stay directly on top of one another.

  4. 4

    Sew all of the way around the blanket, but be sure to do so slowly. The fabric will try to twist and slide a little bit, and if you do not catch both layers your blanket will not stay together. Straighten the edges as needed to keep them together.

  5. 5

    Use a finishing stitch complete your doubled-sided fleece blanket and provide a finish that is both decorative and functional.
