This easy fleece scarf would make the perfect first time sewing project. It’s so simple to make, and it’s for under $5 each. This is a very inexpensive project to tackle!
A few months 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. And I did!
So, let’s get started!
I bought a half yard of red, black, and white fleece (our school colors). This was enough to make 3 scarfs. You can make them any color you’d like though.
First, I cut my fleece into long 7 inch wide strips, the length of the material. So I had one strip for each color. It doesn’t have to be exactly straight. You might notice mine aren’t all exactly 7 inches wide. Just do your best. This project is very forgiving. Lay the 3 strips on top of each other and pin in place.
Now it’s time to get out that sewing machine!
Then you will sew the fleece right down the middle in one long stitch.
Then you’ll take some fabric scissors and cut 1 inch strips on 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 and tied a few knots here and there along each side to help hide the seam.
I am so excited on how it turned out! This would make a great first time sewing project to do with your girls. They’d love it!
