This easy fleece scarf tutorial can be completed in under a half hour!  You can make a warm, fashionable scarf perfect for a night out on the town.

You’ll need:
1/2 yard fleece
1/2 yard ruffle Fabric
Rotary cutter, ruler and mat
Thread
Scissors


1 – Cut out pieces

 

Fast Fashion Fleece Scarf   easy fleece scarf tutorial by  www.fleecefun.com Taking your rotary cutter and mat cut the following strips :
From the fleece cut 2 strips that are 8 inches wide (and 60 inches long)
From the ruffle fabric cut 2 strips that are 8 inches wide ( and 60 inches long)
Note: With the ruffle fabric take care to cut “in-between” the ruffles.  to do this it’s better to unfold the fabric and cut the entire length – do not double it over and cut.

Tip: don’t have a large cutting mat?  Just use a plastic office chair mat – it’s soft plastic so it won’t hurt your blade, and it can take abuse.

 

2 – Sew the lengths together

3 – Bring it together

 With right sides together pin the ruffle fabric to the fleece fabric.  (it’s best to start pinning at the middle seam and work your way out).  Take care not to pin a ruffle into the seam – make sure it’s just the back fabric of the ruffle fabric that you are pining.

Cut the fleece fabric down so it is .5 to 1 inches shorter than the ruffle fabric to make the scarf ends look nice.

4 – Time to sew

5- Set the scarf

Tip: When doing this step start at the middle seam and sew each side separately as the ruffles might not line up at the seam.
