Soft and Chewy Cinnamon Rolls Recipe



Every Sunday our family holds Family Home Evening.  During this time we have a prayer, a lesson, a scripture and a game. But the highlight for the kids {and I'll be honest, for me too} is the treat.

Everyone takes turns being responsible for a different part of the evening. Whoever is in charge of the treat gets to choose what to have and help make it. One of the most requested items for my son is cinnamon rolls.

How to Make a No Sew Fleece Blanket Without Knots

Do you need a quick gift idea? Fleece blankets are soft and cuddly and perfect for little kids. Since there are two layers of fleece they are super warm. I made some of these blankets for my 3 oldest kids a few years ago. I figured my youngest might like one this year. In this tutorial you will learn how to make a no sew fleece blanket without knots.

These blankets are not your average "tie the ends" fleece blanket. My friend showed me how to make these and I think they look so much nicer than the knotted kind.

No Sew Fleece Blanket WITHOUT Ties

Supplies needed:



  • two pieces of fleece of equal size {I used 1 1/2 yards each} 
  • rotary cutter and mat OR
  • scissors and a seam ripper


Steps to a No-Sew Blanket


Stack your two pieces of fabric on top of each other so that you cut them the same.

Then cut out a four inch square out of each corner.

Cut the edge into 4 inch strips 1 1/2 inches apart. Then make a one inch cut in the center at the top end of each strip. Continue all the way around the blanket.

 Now to connect the blankets together

Update 9-8-13: I just got a comment from a reader, Liz asked "will it work the same if I insert both strips into the hole at the same time?" 

I just went and tried it, and it totally works. This will save so much time.

When I made these for my older kids, I was worried that they wouldn't stay together. Three years and several washings they are still just fine.

For baby blankets, get one yard of each fabric then cut in half so that each is approx 30 X 36. You'll be able to get two blankets out of it.

For teens or adults you will probably want to do two yards of each fabric.
