Buy, Cut, Pin, Stitch, Snip and Wear–Scarf

Finding a scarf for the kids is kind of hard.  There are a lot to choose from, but they fall off, are too long….the list goes on. Oh, and then they don’t wear them.
Using fleece {in totally cool prints}, adding a little loop {so it won’t fall off} is a great solution.
In addition to that, it’s only 4 steps and super quick to make!

Materials Needed: 
2– 6″ Strips of fleece fabric
1– 1″ X 5″ fleece strip {for loop} you can trim off one strip to make this little loop piece
I did mine co-ordinating. You could just do 2 of the same or whatever. Usually fleece comes in a width of 60 inches.

Fleece Scarf Tutorial~ 

1) Cut—  You have a choice here. To cut the length or leave the length. I just had little scraps so mine are around 45 inches long. Measure them on the kiddo before cutting to find the right length.
2) Pin— Fleece is a funny thing. It stretches and lengthens magically. Laying the 2 strips right WRONG sides together pin all the way down and 4 inches up from each edge.
3) Stitch— Sew all the way around the outside edge on both sides. Fleece doesn’t ravel so the raw edges are ok. If you have a fancy cutter you could pink the edges–mine is super dull and i didn’t want to go there.
Pay attention here– At the ENDS–you need to sew 3 inches from the end. This way you can snip those ends and make them tassely!!
To keep this from being a tie mine– scarf I added the loop. This loop is pinned in place 32 inches to 36 inches from one end. I pulled my loop up just a bit to give it some slack before sewing it down. The scarf tuckes in a lot easier when you have a bit more give.  The loop is laid the long way also- so when the scarf is crossed over each other it can jump in the loop easy.
4) Snip— Now go back to those ends and snip them. Yay- tassles.

WEAR— Wrap around your neck and slip one end into the loop on the other end. You can just pull a little to make any adjustments. Depending on their neck area one end might end up longer than the other.

Enjoy— no knots, no dragging, slipping, tripping scarfs. They are doubled up for extra warmth and tuck in that little bit of extra. These 4 are gonna be rolled up into their stockings. I might try one more for the honey. Definitly won’t be in the flame fleece…something mellow, calm, and well kind of boring i guess. He is soooo picky 🙂
note: I used scraps of fleece that I had in my bins. The pieces don’t end up to be the same length so only one of the fleece parts got tassled. It would work a little better if they were the same length, but what do ya do. I just went with the flow and here ya go. Plus these are for 5-11 year olds so they don’t need to be extra long…and they aren’t picky ….or boring.
