No Sew Fleece Blanket - Take Two

I made my second No Sew Fleece Blanket the other day. I forgot how easy and quick these are!


I absolutely love how this one came out with the brown and pink. It is for my nephew and his wife who are expecting a baby girl soon - she is decorating the nursery in pink and brown and ladybugs is her theme. I just so happens that I found some pink ladybug fleece fabric awhile back! So even though I am going to be making her a quilt, when I saw this fabric I knew I had to get it and make this too.



I did something different this time around to make my cuts and it worked out so great. My trick was this:


Peel and Stick Ruler Tape!! Rather than using my tape measure or yardstick, I just put this ruler tape down and I was able to keep my edge straight.


Another nice thing about it is that it is marked in 1 inch increments, so it's real easy to see where to make your cuts:



I am definitely using this from now on!

Here are the particulars for this project:

Fleece:  Hancock Fabrics (1 yard of each)
Peel and Stick Ruler Tape: Hobby Lobby (or try your LQS)
Pattern/Tutorial:  There is a really good one here


I hope you try this peel and stick ruler tape - you will love it!

I purchased the pink fleece with ladybugs on it at Hancock Fabrics, but that was several years ago. I don't have any more of it or I would gladly share it with you.
