Fleece Ribbon Throw Tutorial (sew version)
With right sides together, lay the fleece squares on top of each other, raw edges aligned. If there is any excess on one piece, trim it to match the other.
Stitch around the perimeter, leaving a 4″ opening for turning.
Clip the corners and turn right side out.
Step 2 – Turn and Sew
Hand stitch the opening shut OR topstitch around the perimeter of the throw.
Mark 1″ lines around the perimeter of the throw, approximately 1.5″ away from the edge in even increments.
Stitch buttonholes on the markings. If your machine does not like stitching buttonholes through fleece fabric, simple stitch a narrow rectangle with your regular pressure foot.
Carefully cut through both layers of the throw.
Thread the ribbon through the buttonholes.
Tie excess ribbon in a bow at one corner.
