This soft pet blanket is perfect for tucking in your dog's crate or placing in your cat's favorite lounging spot.

Keep reading for the quick and easy directions.

What You'll Need:

  • 1 yard fleece
  • Scissors
  • Tape measure or ruler

Directions:

  1. Fold the yard of fleece in half and cut along the fold, creating two same-size sections of fabric. Now use sharp scissors to create three-inch-deep cuts into the fabric about one inch apart, working around the entire blanket. You can use a tape measure or ruler to help guide your cuts.

  1. Once you've finished making the cuts, start knotting the top section to the bottom by tying a set of cuts together. Tie double knots for a really secure finished blanket.

  1. Fold the completed blanket and adorn with a length of colorful ribbon to pop in a gift bag for giving to a special someone, or place it in the perfect spot and position for your adorable pet to enjoy.
