How To Make A No-Sew Fleece Scarf

My daughter and I just love the soft and cozy feeling of a fleece scarf up around our necks during a cold winter day, so we decided to make our own.

We went to our local fabric store and were amazed at all of the lovely colors and prints that fleece fabric comes in these days. For our project, we chose anti-pill fleece so that we wouldn't have to worry about it pilling up with washing and drying.

The instructions for this project are for an adult-sized scarf, but you can easily shorten the length and width to make one for a child.

No-Sew Fleece Scarf Patten

Supplies Needed

1 yard of soft anti-pill fleece fabric
straight pins
measuring tape
(optional) quilting rotary cutter and cutting mat

Note: It is a lot easier to cut your fleece if you use a rotary cutter and cutting mat, however...you can also use a measuring tape and scissors.

Step 1: Lay out your fleece fabric and cut down to size. You will need a piece that measures 64" to 68" in length by 8" in width which will fit an adult. If you are making this for a child, you can manipulate the size of fabric needed to suit your needs.

Step 2: Measure 5" in from each short edge and place straight pins in a horizontal line into your fabric. I do this so I know how long to cut my fringe. Using scissors, cut fringe so that they measure approximately 1" wide by 5" in length. Remove pins.

You can leave the fringe plain or you can tie them together, the choice is yours. Your scarf is machine wash and dry, no special care is needed.

Wow, you are so talented. This is a really pretty scarf. How long did it take you to make it?

It took me less than 30 minutes to make! I have made about 6 of them in the past 2 weeks or so. I made myself a solid pink and a solid purple one and have been making them for my daughter and a few friends. Going to make C one after I hit the fabric store again.
