    This looks so cute. Can you explain a little more how to do this? I'd love to make one (or some, I have daughters).

    I cut 3 strips 8 inches wide by the length which was 54 inches wide??? and then you stack them, and sew a center down the middle the whole lenth of 54 inches.. then cut 1/2 strips on both sides of the sew line... that was it... I will do another one and take pictures as i do it and post it.... so neat!

    I've made those too! I found if you use a zig-zag stitch when the scarf stretches,your stitches won't "pop".

    Great easy gifts ! Thanks for the idea....but too bad boys won't wear them LOL

    BNLMOM thanks for the reminder of the zig zag stitch...my machine even has a stretch zig zag ... which is like a long stitch but not too wide in width ... less *Z* than a zigzag

    I just made one and I have to say I love it. Thanks you so much for sharing this idea. So easy and so cool looking. I think everyone I know will want one. I'll tell them to buy the fleece and I'll make it. Oh, and I forgot to say, it's really warm, too. Thanks, girliegirl. It's great.
