Child Scarves

Did you see the Giveaway Winner? go here to see who won.

Did you see Yesterday's post about Chunky Beaded Watches? The coupon code is good until tomorrow night! Go check out the post and then order yourself or a friend a kit with 10% off-that is a great deal! You can see the post here

My Boys love scarves and are always trying to borrow mine. Of course, then they trip because a scarf that fits me is WAY too long for them. I set to work making them scarves and it may be the easiest project I have ever done. EVER. 

Please forgive the photo. I don't know what happened. I cut three strips of fleece(that I had leftover from Halloween-which makes this project FREE!) I cut them each 40 inches long by 6 inches wide. I used red and black, and then blue and black.
Line up the three pieces, I put the black in the middle, and sew one line right down the middle. I used a zig zag here, but on the blue one I used a straight stitch.
Cut the top two layers of the fleece into strips. My strips are each about an inch, but I just eyed it. Cut strips down both sides of your seam. Leave the bottom layer of fleece in tact. I left the bottom layer in tact so that cold air wouldn't blow in around the boys' necks. It gets really cold and windy here. I have seen a similar scarf with all the layers cut and while it is very cute, it provides little to no warmth.

*You can use more than 3 layers of fleece! Just leave the bottom layer intact, and cut the top layers into strips. The more layers, the more fluff! Have fun!
P.S. Like our Morning Faces and Bed Heads? We aren't the friendliest bunch in the AM. But it is the only time the kids are still enough to really get a photo.
