Cozy Scarves

Copyright © 1999 Dorothy LaFara, By Amanda Formaro

Looking for a fun sewing project for those with little experience? A scarf is the perfect project for kids, especially with cooler weather just around the corner. Even parents with minimal sewing experience can guide their kids in making these.


8 and up

This project is rated EASY to do.

What You Need

  • ½ yard fleece fabric
  • Sewing machine
  • Thread to match fabric color
  • scissors

What You Do

  1. Cut two pieces of fleece equal in length and width. Length will determine how long your scarf will be.
  2. Lay the two equal pieces with the right sides (the side that has the pattern on it) facing in each other.
  3. Leaving approximately a ¼” seam, sew the full length of the scarf. Repeat on the other side. You will end up with a long tube of fabric with open ends.
  4. Using a pair of scissors, cut the fringe by cutting ½” wide slits about 4” up from each end.
  5. Turn scarf inside out so that the sewn seams are now on the inside, finished edges are on the outside.
  6. Sew a running stitch along the top of the fringe to “close” the ends of the scarf.
  7. Trim any loose threads and you are done!

Helpful Hints

  • Half a yard of fleece will make one scarf approximately 4.5 feet long. If you want a longer scarf, simply get more fabric. Ask for assistance at your favorite fabric supply store.
  • Use good scissors. Cheap or old scissors that have dull blades will make this project much more difficult than it needs to be and can cause problems with cutting straight lines.
  • This is a fun and inexpensive project. Ask store staff where to find the fleece that is on sale. Our scarves cost $3 to $4 each to make.
