Step 1. Use a ruler to draw up your square template on a piece of card. We chose to make ours 32cm x 32cm.
Step 2. Once you have made your template trace and cut out 10 squares of each fleece fabric. So you should end up with 20 squares in total.
Step 3. Once all your pieces are cut start joining the squares together one by one by pinning the sides together and sewing leaving a 1cm seam allowance.
Step 4. Sew 4 squares together to create a row, and repeat this process 5 times until you end up with 5 long pieces.
Step 5. Now start sewing the long pieces together by pinning length ways ensuring the squares line up neatly along the seam line. Sew together leaving a 1cm seam allowance.
Step 6. Repeat this until all panels are sewn together and you have 1 side of the blanket complete.
Step 7. For the backing of the blanket cut out a 152cm x 122cm rectangle from the polar fleece.
Step 8. Place the 2 panels of blanket with right sides facing in. Pin around the entire edge and sew with a 1cm seam allowance leaving a 10cm gap for turning through.
Step 9. Once you have sewn panels together, snip the corners and turn the blanket right sides out. Stich the opening close and your blanket is complete.
