Fringed scarf tutorial


I made a few more scarfs and a tutorial so you all can make them..
(just don't mind the pix it was way to windy or not enough light ,remember I live in the world of darkness in the winter)
Things you will need

Sewing machine
scissors
thread
3colors of 1/ 8 of yards of fleece.
I had the fleece cut into 1/8 cuts at the fabric store it was so easy that way no measuring or cutting on my end

Now stack the 3 pieces of fleece evenly together in a color pattern that you like.
Next cut the selvage edge off of both ends



Now you are ready to sew a straight seam down the middle



Once the 3 pieces are sewed together cut half inch or so strips right up to the  sewing line on both sides.
That's all there is to it.
Now you got your self a fun and super easy scarf.
BTW I got the fleece at Walmart it cost me 3.60 to make two scarfs not bad if I do say so my self.


My next job ids to find a fun dressy scarf pattern for when I go out on the town or just to church if you know of any let me know.
As always if you try this tutorial let me know if you find any mistakes.

YAY! Thank you so much for sharing. This looks so simple! I need to go to Wal-Mart tommorow anyhow so it looks like I will be buying some fleece.

Great scarf!! I'm so craftily unsavvy I could probably even screw that up, though.

Cute site! Stopping by from SITS...

Hi just dropped by from SISTAS and so glad I did. I'll bet that scarf keeps your neck very warm.
I went to the next post and was in awe of your beautiful photos. Come by for a visit, if you get the time.

Stay Warm.
