Fleece Weave Scarf

Crafts Indoors crafts

Duration: 30 minutes/Group Size: Any Toolbox:
  • Fleece fabric in solid colors
  • Fabric scissors
  • Tailor's chalk
  • Fabric glue
How To:
  1.     Cut a long, rectangular scarf from the fleece, about 5 feet by 7 inches.
  2.     Use the chalk to mark a grid on the scarf (the scarf above has three columns of half-inch vertical slits spaced about two inches apart; the scarf at right has four columns).
  3.     Cut open the slits.
  4.     Cut narrow strips of fleece, about 1 1/2 inches wide and a few inches longer than your scarf. If the fleece isn't long enough, overlap the ends of two strips and secure them with fabric glue; let the glue dry a bit before proceeding.
  5.     Weave the strips into the slits of the scarf. Tack the ends of the strips to the scarf with glue.
Tips: Instead of gluing the strip ends to the scarf, cut the ends of the strips and the scarf into fringe. Give the seniors an activity:  Leave the strip ends unglued and add a note with your gift explaining that the strips can be rewoven to create new patterns. Remember to include several extra strips in various colors in your package.
