As I sat outside Little Miss’ classroom on Friday afternoon,
I was looking at the scarf of one of her classmates.
Soft, snuggly polar fleece…
I can make one like that!
So here’s the
I started with approximately 30cm (12″) of each of my polar fleece fabrics
I ended up with 4 scarves
(So if you just want one scarf, you’ll need 15cm or 6″)
I used my rotary cutter and cutting mat,
so this whole project took about 10 minutes.
But you could just as easily use scissors.
First fold your fabric in half and match the selvedge edges.
Then trim the long edges so that they are straight.
I trimmed off the selvedges at this point too.
The beauty of polar fleece is that it won’t fray so no sewing!
Next trim your scarf to the width you want.
I went for about 15cm or 6″ wide so that I got two scarves from each piece of fabric.
Now you could leave them just like that and be done,
but I wanted fringing.
So I just cut the edges in about 15cm or 6″
about half a centimetre (quarter inch) apart.
If you leave it folded, you’ll do both ends of the scarf at once.
Kids are loving them and I’ll just be able to toss them in with the washing when they need it.
