    Several has wondered about neck scarves, this is the easy method.
    Fleece can be any width you desire, I use about 13-18 inches.

    Cut the fleece from selvage to selvage. Now fold fleece in half selvage ends together. Cut on fold line. Now you have 2 scarves, selvage on one end and cut edge other end. Trim selvage, then sew 2 ends together. I use a French seam. If it looks like a big tube you have completed the scarf.

    Pull over your head and keep warm. These are wide enough to tuck around neck, pull up over your ears and head or cover face, cowboy style.
    Hope this helps keep everyone warm. Let me know if you have questions.

    I look for pieces of fleece all year long. You can find fleece on clearance table or during the off season.

    These scarves are quick and easy.


    Merry Christmas

    I've made them where instead of cutting them in half, I use the entire WOF to make the tube. It allows you to wrap once to keep the neck warm and once to use as a cap/scarf of sorts up over your head/ears.

    Do you have to do anything with the long cut edges?

    I will try to send pictures in the morning. I am a visual person also.
    Nothing has to be done on the cut edges. Fleesce does not ravel.

    I made 9 of them yesterday, they are so easy. I do hem the long edges after I sew the ends together, with a stretch stitch but you don't have to, just my boys say it stays over their nose better.

    With fleece scarves I have, for my very young GDs cut a slit in the scarf on one side in center then the scarf may be pulled through. This eliminates bulk for small children and really works.

    Hope these help. I use a piece of fleece 11 inches by 19 inches and the 19 has to be on the stretch, when you pull on the fleece it will stretch more one way than the other.

    fold in half and stitch the end together.

    turn right side out and it is finished. You can ether leave the edges alone, wavy cut them, or hem them, I found if I hem them they like them better but be sure to use a stitch that will stretch.

    Again Hope this helps.

    Yesterday at Joanne's a lady choose school colored fleece and had the clerk cut them for her - most unusual esp. with the line waiting. They were to be gifts for cheerleaders. All she was going to do was trim selvage from both edges and make 6 inch cuts along both edges to fringe. Simple quick and at 50% off, very affordable for the whole swuad. I think she had the scarves cut in 9 inch pieces and WOF.

    We were at a little bar and gril for an early supper on Fr. night and a lady brought in a bunch of fleece neck scarves she had sewn. She had them wrapped around a snow ski and carried the entire ski full of them in with her. She sold 6 or 7 of them in about 5 minutes. She made them with an opening to pull one end through and then had a pin/clip on the outside for a decoration. They were a hit. I was impressed with her display "rack."
