A few months ago, we shared some skill techniques for finishing the edges of a fringed no-sew fleece blanket. The response was wonderful! We love Pinterest…

Sandi also shot two YouTube videos to show this technique and a variation.

Based on some of the many comments, here are some clarifications.
- The direction to cut the slits is parallel to the fringe cuts, or perpendicular to the edges, or in the direction of the inside of the blanket.
- The fringe won’t come loose if the slits are small enough.
- They won’t come loose in the washing machine – mostly, if you’ve made the slits small enough. If they do, it’s easy to put them right back in.
- A way to make pulling the fringe through the slits is to use a good-sized crofhet needle.
Finally, the scissors Sandi mentions in the YouTube video can be found at www.bobbibopstuff.com. You can see them here: http://www.bobbibopstuff.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=18&products_id=737
