Fleece Scarf Tutorial


I am trying to hurry and get this post done because fleece is on sale right now at JoAnn, but the sale ends the 29th of January. So if you want to make one of these adorable scarves, buy your fleece right away!

You need 2 coordinating colors of fleece. If you are only making one scarf, you can probably get away with 1/4 yard of each. We did them for Activity Days, so I bought one yard of 4 different colors and we got 13 scarves out of it.

Start by cutting your fleece into a long rectangle, approximately 5 inches x 36 inches. Layer your two peices of fleece on top of each other and pin.

Then sew a straight line down the center. Don't worry if it's not perfectly straight.

Trim your threads, then cut slits in the fleece. They should be about an inch apart. Try to get as close to your sewn line as possible without cutting through it.

Fluff it up a bit and you are good to go! 

See how the girls used the sewing machine all by themselves? Yeah!

Lookin' good!
