You can put your custom clothing labels on all of your creations, especially if they are gifts. When the weather starts getting cooler, you’re going to need some scarfs. Making them yourself is not hard to do, and it saves a lot of money. All you need are a few materials, including a yard of fleece, rotary cutter, pins, and thread to match the scarf.
- Cut the fleece so that it is about 16 inches wide and 58 inches long. For this, you’ll need your cutting board and the rotary cutters. When you cut it, you need to fold the scarf in half and cut along the edge, which helps you to stick to a straight line.
- After cutting, fold the fleece in half with the right sides together. Stitch a seam down the long edge of the fleece using a 1/2 inch seam. Turn the material right side out. Place it back onto the cutting board and measure how long you need the fringe to be.
- Place a strip of tape across the fleece. Then, take tape strips and put them at regular intervals perpendicular to the piece of tape going across the scarf. Cut the fringe to the desired thickness, using the tape to keep a straight line. Do the same on the other side of the scarf to make fringe. Now, knot pieces of the fringe together to close the inside of the scarf.
You can make these scarves in under 30 minutes each. You can adapt the design to use different colors of fleece in the same scarf, but it will add time to the project.
