2 pieces of fabric:
I used one 45" x 45" piece of flannel fabric for each layer. I chose a print for the top and a solid/blender contrast color for the opposite side.
1. CUT FABRIC PIECES
Lay down one piece of fabric, wrong side up. Lay the other piece of fabric directly on top of the first, right side up.
Cut the 2-layer piece to the desired size. I wanted a square blanket and my fabric was 45" wide, so my blanket was cut to 45" x 45".
2. CUT OUT CORNERS
Cut out each corner from your 2 layer piece. The size of corner you remove depends on the length of you will cut your fringe. The corner sides should measure the length of fringe you will cut. For example, my fringe was cut to 3", so I cut my corners 3" x 3". Cut through both layers of fabric.
3. CUT FRINGE
Cut slits between corner cut-outs. The fringe width is your choice. I cut my fringe approximately 1/4 " wide x 3 " long. The images are not to scale, but show the idea.
4. TIE FRINGE
Tie each set of fringe (tie the fringe piece from the top layer to the fringe piece directly below). You can tie once or twice. I found that once was sufficient (rather than the usual double-tied knot).
The fringe will "soften" in appearance when machine washed and dried.
