But what if you could make your blanket extra warm and soft? That’s where this tutorial comes in. In it, we will show you how to make a thick throw blanket that will keep you cozy all winter long. If you are looking for a fun and easy project that can add a touch of luxury to your bedroom, this is the tutorial for you!
Making a thick throw blanket is a great way to keep yourself warm on cold days. This project is easy to follow and only requires a few materials.
To make your blanket, you will need:
-A 100% cotton fabric
-An 18 inch by 24 inch piece of fabric
-A sewing machine
-polyester fiber fill (optional)
-iron or steamer
If you are using a polyester fiber fill, be sure to buy the correct size for your project. The fill should be at least 20 ounces per square yard (2 pounds per square foot). You can purchase the fiber fill at most fabric stores or online.
The first step in making your blanket is to sew together the two 24 inch by 18 inch pieces of fabric. Make sure that the selvage (the seam that runs along each edge of the fabric) is aligned so that it forms a continuous border all around the blanket. Next, measure out 1 inch from each end of the border and mark them with a pencil. Turn the blanket so that the selvage is facing down and sew these marks into place using a sewing machine. Do not close off the opening yet; we will do this later when we are filling theblanket with fiberfill.
If you are using a polyester fiberfill, now would be a good time to add it to the opening in the border
How to Make a Thick Throw Blanket
The throw blanket is a versatile and comfortable accessory that can be used in many different ways. This tutorial will show you how to make a thick blanket that is perfect for snuggling up on the couch or bed.
To make the blanket, you will need a large piece of fabric, a sewing machine, and some sewing supplies. First, measure out your desired size of the blanket and cut out your fabric. Next, sew the ends of the fabric together using a straight stitch or a zigzag stitch. Make sure to leave enough fabric at both ends so that you can turn it into a loop once it’s finished.
To make the throw blanket even more cozy, add some extra fabric loops around the outside edge of the blanket. Start by Sewing one loop close to one end of the fabric and then continue sewing loops until you reach the other end of the fabric. Try not to sew them too close together or they will be difficult to remove once you’re finished! Once you’ve sewn all of the loops, tuck them inside of each other so that they are hidden.
Tips for Making a Thick Throw Blanket
If you’re looking for a cozy blanket that will keep you warm all winter, you’ll want to make a thick throw blanket. Here are some tips for making a thick throw blanket:
1. Choose the right yarn. Thick yarns are best for blankets because they hold their shape and keep you warm. You can use any type of yarn, but heavier weights will produce a thicker blanket.
2. Make a pattern. A pattern is not necessary, but it can help your blanket look more finished and professional. You can either knit or crochet a basic pattern, or simply follow the instructions provided on the ball of yarn you’re using.
3. Block your blanket before sewing it together. Blocking your blanket before sewing it together will help it maintain its shape and resist pilling. Simply lay the blanket out on a flat surface and use a rolling pin or your hands to press down evenly on all sides. Be sure to block the edges too, as these tend to wear more quickly than the center of the fabric.
4. Sew your blanket together using traditional needle and thread techniques. When sewing together blocks of textured fabric, be sure to use strong seams so that the fabric doesn’t pull apart during wear (this is especially important with crochet).
If you’re looking for a cozy blanket to cuddle up in during the winter months, then you’ll want to make a throw like this one. It’s super easy to make and it will keep you warm all night long. All you need is some thick fabric and a sewing machine.
