Knoxville-based Nuestros Ninos group is planning another mission trip to Guatemala this summer, and is accepting no-sew fleece blanket donations to ship for that trip by mid-April. The blankets go to impoverished children and their families in that area.

Recently Local 8 News Anchor Alan Williams helped complete two no-sew blankets on the CW morning show that will be donated to the Nuestros Ninos mission.

The simplest way to make these blankets is like this:

Select two contrasting colors of fleece fabric, cut in 1 1/2 yard pieces.

Place wrong sides together.

Cut a 7-inch by 7-inch square out of all four corners.

Cut 7-inch-long, one-inch-wide strips around the blanket.

Tie every other double-layered strip in a square knot.

Flip the blanket over and tie the remaining strips.

If you would like to donate a blanket or supplies for the blanket project, you can contact

via their website or message them @NuestrosNinosCharity on Facebook, or email, call 865-599-4347.

*Laundry care for fleece: wash cold, air dry or tumble dry very low.
