5 Minute Fleece Throw Blanket

Sharing is caring!

Easy 5 minute fleece throw blanket.

How to make a fleece throw blanket in 5 minutes or less using a serger.

This is the easiest project ever if you have a serger. I love serging everything and I like how the edges look with a serger.

All I did was find some great fleece fabric from my local craft store, ask them to cut 2 yards worth, and serge around it.

They’re super soft, they’re warm, and my oldest son LOVES his Cars blanket. Make sure you get a coupon for the fabric if it’s not already on sale- usually I find one for 30-50% off one item which brings the cost of my blanket down SUBSTANTIALLY.

Don’t have a serger? If you can, buy one. It is so nice to have, even if it’s a bit difficult to thread, because it sews FAST and very pretty. Below is an affiliate link to the one I own and love. That said, I think a zig zag stitch on a regular sewing machine would do the trick.

You probably don’t need a video to demonstrate this, but I made one anyways.

Here are my boys enjoying the blankets…

I am a wing it kind of seamstress, but I have always wanted to try a serger. My machine kind of hates me, I might get along better with a serger! ;-)
