Pittsburgh Steelers No Sew Blanket

After another mostly sleepless night, I got up early & pulled my weary body out of bed. Finishing projects always makes me feel better, more accomplished. Since I had planned to wash my sheets, I decided to make my husband’s blanket … one I had promised him two Christmases ago. To my defense, once I had the idea to make it he also had a list of people for me to make them for. So in an effort to get the gifts ready on time, his got pushed to the back of the pile.

Our house is small. So, there is never a good space for doing large projects. I have made all of the other blankets on the guest bed. However, with our middle son returning to live with us recently, there is no longer a guest bed. The only place left to spread out & make a blanket on was our bed. I specifically waited until wash day because I have been known to cut through a blanket a time (or two) Yep, that’s no good! Thank goodness it was an old one! In any case, I needed a completely unmade bed.

(Sorry, no tutorial included … just my thoughts!)

When I began making these no sew blankets, I scoured the web for tutorials & photos. My first blanket took me 5 hours! No joke! I was so meticulous about my fringe being all the same width, length etc. What I have learned is that it just really doesn’t matter if you are perfect. That is what is so great about this blanket … the imperfections don’t stick out like a sore thumb.


With my first blankets, I tied a double knot. This makes the fringe look more fringy 🙂 Now, I prefer to take both strands and tie them as one unit … not really sure what that knot is called. I just like my fringe more uniform.


Start to finish 2 hours. (That included throwing the sheets in the washer & clearing a walking space around my bed so that I could work without falling on my scissors!)

As an added bonus, I found the perfect amount of material in the bag that was left from one of our gifted blankets to make a no sew scarf for myself. Win!


I hope if you have been shying away from making your own no sew blanket that this has encouraged you to give it a try! Really! You can do it!


About nonnymoose2014

I have recently retired from the healthcare field, nursing. As I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, this seemed like the perfect time to try my hand at blogging again. In the past, my success (or lack thereof) I believe hinged on my fear of revealing too much about myself. I have a desire to “put it all out there” BUT I want to do it on my own terms … anonymously! Thus came Nonny Moose.
