DIY No Sew Blankets for Pets

Want to help the animals in our care with a fun project? We are always in need of cozy blankets for our pets! Here are some easy to follow instructions for how to make no-sew blankets perfect to keep them comfortable for their (hopefully short) shelter stay.

How To Make No Sew Blankets


  • Fleece material (1 yard will make one large blanket or two small blankets)
  • Scissors (fabric scissors work best!)


  • Cut your fleece to the desired size.
  • With your scissors, go around the edges of your blanket and cut 2 inch wide strips.
  • Cut the corner strips out. You don’t need them!
  • Go around again and cut each of the wide strips in half.
  • Tie each pair of strips into double knots. If your blanket is starts to bunch up, gently tug and pull the sides straight.

Tips on blanket sizes:

  • For small to medium animals: 24”x 24”.
  • Larger animals: 36” x 36”.
