No Sew Personalized Throw

By:

2 Comments

Searching for easy no sew crafts?  This No Sew Personalized Throw from Maize Hutton is the perfect project to take on this winter or any time of the year.  It's easy, affordable and adorable.


Materials:

  • Heat Bond
  • Scissors
  • Font Stencil
  • Iron/Ironing Board
  • Pencil
  • Carbon Paper
  • Fleece throw
  • Scraps of fabric

Instructions:

Note: I used the 'Hoedown' font and increased the size to 600pt. You can also print it off and have it increased at a copy store. You'll want to reverse the font. You can do this in Photoshop or your Word program. With this technique, you'll only have to cut the letters out once.

 

  1. Cut out your fabric pieces and Heat-n-bond for each.
     
  2. Lay your fabric right side down and iron the Heat-n-bond sheet (sticky side) to the wrong side of the fabric. After you completed this for each letter, lay a piece of carbon paper on the paper side of the Heat-n-bond and then your letter font on top of it. Trace your letter (make sure it's reversed!) Complete this step for each letter.
     
  3. Cut out each letter.
     
  4. Pull the paper portion of the Heat-n-bond off of each letter and position on the fleece throw.
     
  5. Iron on each letter.
     
  6. YOU'RE DONE! This would be a great gift for any occasion. 'Mr. & Mrs.' would be cute for a wedding gift.

Love making these blankets. Great tips. I have used spray adhesive, heat-n-bond, and steam a seam 2 and I like Steam-a-Seam 2 the most. I usually stitch around the letters too just to make sure they don't start to peel off. I make these blankets with matching canvas bags and pillows for "sleepover sets" for my daughter and her friends. They LOVE them!

Having made many of these , I would suggest buying a fairly heavy throw or make one from fleece of your choosing. Adhere the lettering with temporary adhesive spray and hand or machine sew with even a simple zigzag stitch. They look great and everyone has one for movie time! It lasts longer in the wash when sewn. Not complicated and simple shapes can also be scattered on them for more personalization. Fun gift idea here!
