Hello all! Welcome to my very first tutorial (hopefully the first of many!) This is a very easy scarf to make for yourself or to give away. This project doesn't use much fabric at all and you can make a bunch of scarves from just one yard of fabric.
First off, gather your materials. You will need:
Fleece - You will ultimately need a piece that is 7" wide by 64" long. Here, I used a yard length to start. This is just regular fleece I picked up... it's argyle so I had to have it!
Cutting your material: Lay out your fleece on your cutting mat. Mine is folded in this photo.
With your rotary cutter, cut off 7" of fleece, creating a long strip. I didn't unfold my fleece to cut through it.
Mine is 7", but you can make your scarf whatever width you would like. This is the finished width.
Making the fringe: Unfold your fleece and line it up on the cutting mat. Using your scissors, cut strips along the edge of your fleece every inch.
My cuts are 3" long. You can choose to make yours longer or shorter depending on how "fringe-y" you are feeling!
Here are all six cuts finished.
Next, fold the strips up and cut a small slit in the center of each of the pieces.
Once each of the strips is cut it will look like this.
Next, pull the edge of the strip through the slit.
Pull it all the way through. Repeat this for each of the seven pieces.
The finished fringe will look like this. Now, flip over the fleece and repeat the process to the other side of the scarf.
The finished scarf!
The last step: Attach a cute tag to it and give your handmade scarf to someone special. :-)
