Fringe Scarf

We only use scarves about one week out of the year here in Houston.   To me, that’s a bummer, because I love cold weather.  Maybe it’s because I like to wear cozy things.  I love this scarf because it doesn’t fall off my son’s neck.  I don’t have to keep picking it up and wrapping it back around him. I put it over his head and it keeps him warm without any fuss or bother.

Check out the process.  It only took me 30 minutes.

Cut two pieces of fleece 30 inches long by 5 inches wide.  Sew the length of the scarf two times about one inch apart and mirrored about the center.

Cut a piece of ¼ inch wide elastic 18 inches long.  Tie one end of the elastic around a hanger formed into a hook.  Insert the elastic in one end of the scarf between the two sewn lines.  Sew the untied end of the elastic.

Pull the other end of the elastic out and untie it.  Pin the elastic a couple inches from the end to hold in place while you sew.  Sew the elastic.

Sew the two ends of the scarf together and trim any excess.

Make short cuts along the length of the scarf to create fringe.

The real deal: It cost me less than $2 to make this scarf.

What do you think?

Go and be pretty,

  1. This is a very pretty and easy scarf to make. Thanks for the tutorial! MERRY CHRISTMAS  and have a………………….HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Very cute and clever! What age is your son? What increments do you increase the scarf measurements by? 5 x36 would need how much elastic?

    • Great question Kim- At the time my son was 3, but the scarf was too big. It would probably fit a 10 year old just fine. For an adult, try 21 or 22 inches of elastic for a 36 length of fleece.
