  • Cut out one strip of fleece 62" long by 10" wide Cut the length by the stretch of the fabric.
  • Fold the strip in half to measure 31" by 10". (These measurements are for a child's size)
  • On the folded edge: 6" from the front edge. Mark 8" on the back edge down from the fold.
  • Stitch the curve, tapering into the fold and the back edge.
  • Serge or zig zag the seam allowance.
  • On the end of the scarf (the end without the seam) Make cuts 2" in perpendicular to the edge, as shown in the diagram.
  • Try the scarf on and locate the best area under the chin for a button. Attach an elastic loop to the opposite side for securing the button.

Ideas to enhance a simple scarf
  • Use your serger to finish the edges.
  • Using narrow strips of fleece, attach a bunch of them in the seam at the crown to create a tassel effect.
  • Make matching mittens or gloves.
  • Use other kinds of fabric by allowing enough fabric for a hem.
