Polar fleece is a soft and warm fabric that is popular among people of all ages. It comes in many different colors, patterns and weights. Polar fleece is used for making warm clothing, blankets and outerwear. If two layers of polar fleece are simply cut and then sewn together, a warm fringed scarf can be made in only a matter of minutes.
Things You'll Need
- 2 pieces of polar fleece (complimentary patterns or colors)
- Straight edge ruler
- Sewing machine
- Disappearing fabric pen
Cut the polar fleece fabrics into rectangles that are 4 1/2 inches wide and 45 inches long.
Place the polar fleece pieces together with right sides facing each other. Pin the pieces on both long sides together to secure.
Stitch along both long edges using a 1/4-inch seam allowance. This will create a long polar fleece tube.
Turn the polar fleece tube right side out.
Lay the polar fleece tube on a flat work surface and measure the fringe through both fleece layers on both short edges. Measure the cuts for the fringe 1/4 inch apart and 3 inches long. Mark the location of the fringe cuts with the disappearing fabric pen.
With the scissors, cut the fringe through both polar fleece thicknesses along the marked lines on both short edges of the polar fleece to finish the polar fleece scarf.
