DIY Gameday Blanket

Fall is here which means it’s football season! With cooler weather arriving it’s the perfect time to make this quick and easy gameday blanket. Great for snuggling up in at a football game or for cheering on your favorite teams from the couch 😉

Made from cozy sweatshirt fleece it has a smooth right side and a cozy inside which gives you a more finished look than traditional fleece without any extra work!


You can leave it plain or applique a patch of fabric from your favorite team to one corner. If you have an embroidery machine that would be a good option too!


To make your own you will need 2 yards of sweatshirt fleece and a small patch of team fabric (optional)

  1. Hem 2 of the edges by folding the fabric over 3/4″. You could do fringe on all 4 sides but hemming is a bit quicker
  2. On the other 2 sides snip along the entire edge. I made my snips about 4″ deep and 3/4-1″ wide.
  3. Knot the fringe
  4. Position your team fabric in one corner and sew around all edges with a short, wide zig-zag stitch. I sewed around it twice


Happy Sewing!
