I hope you will join me each month to see all of the new projects and to link up the crafty goodness that you’ve been working on.
Instructions for No Sew DIY Scarf
You will be amazed at how easy this no sew fleece scarf is. There really is no pattern. I bought this piece of gray patterned fleece at Walmart. I don’t remember how much I paid for it, but it wasn’t much, and I loved the pattern.
A few weeks later I went to the fabric store, and they had a great selection of fleece in their remnants. I got a piece a black and white piece to make a plaid scarf for under a dollar.
They had great patterns for kids, and this project is easy enough that kids could make these too.
The amount of fleece that you use depends on how you like your scarves. I have seen some that are wide and others that are more narrow. A quarter or half of a yard of fleece is enough to make a scarf.
Measure your fleece so that it’s long enough to go over your head and then wrap around again and add 12″. My piece of fleece was 72″ x 10″. You will be able to wear this DIY scarf two ways.
Bring the short ends together and cut 6″ slits into both layers of the fabric to make a fringe on both ends. I actually have a winter scarf made from a piece of fleece and that’s all I did to it. Since the fleece won’t unravel, you don’t have to worry about sewing the ends.
To make this an infinity scarf, you need to tie the two ends together. Double knot the fringes together to connect them. Do this with all of the pieces that you cut.
When you’re done tying all of the fringes, it will look like this. Now you are ready to wear your scarf. You can slip it over your head, and have the knots hang down.
On really cold days, I like to double loop my scarves to keep my neck warm. You can wear this fleece scarf in the snow or you can wear it with a winter outfit.
These new sew fleece scarves are a nice gift. There are so many patterns, that I’m sure you will find one that you love.
