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.
1/2 yard fleece
1/2 yard ruffle Fabric
Rotary cutter, ruler and mat
1 – Cut out pieces
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
With right sides together and using a half inch seam allowance sew the two pieces of ruffle fabric together (end to end) to make a long length. Then sew the fleece together end to end using a .5 inch seam allowance. You should now have two pieces: one long ruffle piece and one long fleece piece.
3 – Bring it together
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
To make the scarf lay right finish with this last step. Sparesly pin the scarf so it is perfectly folded in half (ruffle on the top side side, fleece on the bottom) Top stitch on the scarf in the middle of the ruffle fabric (or as close to the middle as you can) under a ruffle (so the stitch is hidden) so the scarf won’t shift. Trim your thread and you are finished!
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.
