Photo Tutorial: How to make a No Sew weighted blanket for Sensory Processing Disorder

  • Allie Rawlings

    I tried this, but it didn't work quite so well. It's heavy, definitely, but the ziplock bags slide around, which is a pain, and the weight isn't even enough. I preweighed all the bags, but with them not staying in place, the weight slides all over. I'm just going to have to find a blanket with smaller squares, I think. Oh and I skipped the velcro and just sewed the cuts back up.

  • Nancy McClure

    Thank you for your input....I like the idea of smaller squares, that really makes sense.

    Denise, check with fabric stores or online. That's where I find them in the US.

    How much do these usually run? And I assume you sew sections for them to go into so all the weight doesn't go to one place ?
