Hello! It’s Ginger from GingerSnapCrafts.com. I am so excited to be back here sharing an easy tutorial with you! A few weeks ago I was at a marching band competition for my older two kiddos, and a lady walked by with the cutest fleece scarf on in their school colors. Of course, I thought to myself I could totally make that! Annnnd I did! So let’s get started!

how to make a fleece scarf

I bought a half yard of red, black & white fleece (our school colors!). This was enough to make 3 scarfs. You can make them any color you’d like though! I cut my fleece into long 7 inch wide strips. So I had one strip for each color. It doesn’t have to be exactly straight. Annnd you might notice mine aren’t all exactly 7 inches wide either. Just do your best! This project is very forgiving! Lay the 3 strips on top of each other & pin in place.

Next you will sew the fleece right down the middle in one long stitch. Make sure your bobbin is full before you get started! ha! ;)

Then you’ll take some fabric scissors & cut 1 inch strips along each side of the seam. Be careful not to cut all the way to the seam though.

Then I kind of fluffed up the scarf & tied a few knots here & there along each side to help hid the seam. All done!

I am so excited on how it turned out! These would make awesome Christmas gifts or a girl’s night craft project or even a first sewing project! My 8 year old daughter loved helping me make these. Thanks so much for having me over! :) I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I’ll see you back here next month. Can you believe it’s almost December? :)

    Stupid question. So the scarf is going to be 7″ across, but how long, the width of the fabric? Thanks in advance looking forward to putting some of these together for my daughters little friends for Christmas.

      Great question! Yes, it was just the width of the fabric. It ended up being the perfect length. :)
