Making your own fleece scarf is exciting and fun. You choose your favorite color, patterns and prints. You even experiment with color combinations too. Just like knitting and crochet, sewing fleece scarves can be a good pastime too. There are so many DIY patterns. Take this video that I am going to share with you, it is so easy. It is guaranteed that once you try this tutorial from Online Fabric Store, you will be crazy about making fleece scarves.
This DIY tutorial will show you how to make a double-sided fleece scarf that will keep you warm during the winter. So let’s get started.
The materials you’ll need are:
- rotary cutter mat
- rotary cutter
- 1 yard of fleece (Seattle Seahawks NFL Fleece Fabric)
- black thread
- ballpoint pins
Cut off the selvage part of the fleece. Many dressmakers or tailors consider selvage a garbage.
Place the two pieces on top of each other with the right sides facing together. Understandably, you don’t have a cutting table because you are not a professional garment maker, but then your study table or office table or even dining table will do.
Cut a 13 by 60-inch piece out of the fleece. This is an ideal measurement of a scarf.
According to history, the first scarf was made in Ancient Rome and it was called Sudarium from the Latin word sweat cloth.
Pin along the two sides and sew using a zigzag stitch. If this is your first attempt in sewing, it is always best to pin the clothes for an obvious reason- to fasten the clothes firmly. Also, the right way to use the pin is to face the point toward the center of the cloth and the head should extend over the edge of the fabric.
Start 4 inches in and stop 4 inches before the end. Another thing to consider here as you sew the clothes together, make sure to remove the pin before the needle reaches it.
Cut the Fringe. with the ruler and rotary cutter, make 1 inch wide by 4 inch long strips. Fringing is not just a final aesthetic touch in your scarf but it is also a good way to secure the whole fabric.
Tie The Knots Turn the scarf right side out.
Take the two sides of the fringe and loop the end over and through the hoop. So make sure as you cut the fringe, you have an even number.
Push the knot upward, continue on both sides. Once the fringe is all tied, your fleece scarf is now complete. You can mix different teams and different colors, for both sides.
