Knot A Felt No-Sew Throw for Your Doll

Like fleece, felt does not either unravel when you cut it
or fray while you are handling it.
       Here is a doll sized version of a popular no-sew fleece throw blanket.
       The primary difference between the two crafts is the material used and way in which the two materials are tied together.
       Felt is substituted for the fleece because it is easier for a young person to tie it, when it is cut so small, and the tying method used is the same overhand knot children practice while learning to tie their shoes.

Supply List:
  • two 9"x12" felt rectangles (22.9 cm x 30.5 cm ) any color you choose
  • scissors
Step-by-Step:
  1. Cut a 2"x 2" square from each end of the rectangle.
  2. Cut fringe around the outside edges of both rectangles measuring approximately 1/4".
  3. Layer the fringed rectangles on top of each other.
  4. Now tie corresponding fringe from front to back, in an overhand knot, twice, working your way around the entire circumference of both layered rectangles, until you run out of fringe to knot.
Detail photos of the felt fringe both loose and tied.

Here is an alternative fleece version
of the same craft method.
