Buy, Cut, Pin, Stitch, Snip and Wear--Scarf

Can you handle a 6 step fleece scarf? I sure can---how about 4 of them!!
While I should be sewing other items for Christmas Gifting---I got a little side tracked. We have been out a few times in this bitter cold and I have seen a few scarfs out there......and alas- they have met and this is what i have come up with.
Are you ready to start? Let's begin:
Buy--- you need 2 6inch stips of a fleece. I did mine co-ordinating. You could just do 2 of the same or whatever. Usually fleece comes in a width of 60 inches. **You also need one little 1 inch stip 5 inches long. This is a little loop to tuck the scarf in so you don't have to knot it.
Cut--- You have a choice here. To cut the length or leave the length. I just had little scraps so mine are around 45 inches long. Just leave them the 60 inches if that is what you like.
Pin---Fleece is a funny thing. It stretches and lengthens magically. Laying the 2 strips right WRONG sides together pin all the way down and 4 inches up from each edge.

Stitch---Sew all the way around the outside edge on both sides. Fleece doesn't ravel so the raw edges are ok. If you have a fancy cutter you could pink the edges--mine is super dull and i didn't want to go there.
Pay attention here-- At the ENDS--you need to sew 3 inches from the end. This way you can snip those ends and make them tassely!!
To keep this from being a tie mine-- scarf I added the loop. This loop is pinned in place 32 inches to 36 inches from one end. I pulled my loop up just a bit to give it some slack before sewing it down. The scarf tuckes in a lot easier when you have a bit more give. See below. The loop is layed the long way also- so when the scarf is crossed over each other it can jump in the loop easy. See last pic to see this better.


Snip---Now go back to those ends and snip them. Yay- tassles.




WEAR--- wrap around your neck and slip one end into the loop on the other end. You can just pull a little to make any adjustments. Depending on their neck area one end might end up longer than the other.
Enjoy--- no knots, no dragging, slipping, tripping scarfs. They are doubled up for extra warmth and tuck in that little bit of extra. These 4 are gonna be rolled up into their stockings. I might try one more for the honey. Definitly won't be in the flame fleece...something mellow, calm, and well kind of boring i guess. He is soooo picky :)
note: I used scraps of fleece that I had in my bins. The pieces don't end up to be the same length so only one of the fleece parts got tassled. It would work a little better if they were the same length, but what do ya do. I just went with the flow and here ya go. Plus these are for 5-11 year olds so they don't need to be extra long...and they aren't picky ....or boring.
