Easy Scarf Gift Idea

I made several scarves lately and wanted to share how I did it. 
First, I purchased some fleece fabric from Hancock fabrics. I used this fabric for two Baylor alums, so went with a pattern of green and gold:

I bought half a yard in order to make two scarves.  I used my cutting board and rotary cutter to trim up the edges.

Next I cut the length of the fabric in two (each strip was around 8 inches wide):

To finish them up, I fringed the edges by cutting in 3 inch strips on each end of the scarf. I used straight pins to keep them even.

All done…

Then I rolled them up and topped them with ribbon and a bow!

I also made a whole stash of scarves for Christmas party favors for my daughters class at school. For this project,  I used  $3 fleece throw blankets from Big Lots and cut it in 6 inch wide strips using the length of the throw blanket.  I was able to do 20 scarves using only two blankets.

They were a hit!

Thanks for looking! And Merry Christmas!

  1. They turned out great Lori! It is so nice that each child received a scarf too. Better than lots more sweets.
