For this tutorial, though, we’re going to take it up a notch. With just a few extra steps, you can make a cozy 2-toned scarf with stylish fringe and a double-layer of warmth for those cold winter days. Make one for yourself, or make ten to give away as holiday gifts for friends and family!

The first step is deciding how wide you want your scarf to be. I went with 9 inches, but feel free to make your scarf a little skinnier or wider than that. Most fleece fabrics come in 60-inch rolls, which conveniently is a great length for a scarf.

Then comes the fun part: choosing your fabric! Pick out 2 types of fleece that you think would look nice together. You can try two prints, two solids, or a solid plus a print like I did here. Have fun and be creative!

Ask the employee at the fabric store to cut a 9-inch strip (or however wide you want your scarf) from each roll of fleece. You should end up with 2 pieces of fabric that are 9 inches wide by 60 inches long.

If there’s any selvage (the factory edge of the fabric that has a different texture) on your fleece, trim it off. Be careful to cut straight clean lines.

Lay one piece of fleece on top of the other (“right sides” out). Fold under and pin the edges of each long side so that all of the raw edges are hidden on the inside. This will give you a nice finished edge to your scarf.

Sew the finished long edges in place, but leave 5 inches unsewn on each end of the scarf. That’s where our fringe is going to go.

Before you cut your fringe, sew a vertical line at the 5-inch mark. This will keep your fringe from ripping or stretching any further than you want it to.

Next, cut one-inch strips all along the short ends of the scarf. Tie the strips into double-knots at the base of the fringe to secure.

And that’s it, you’re done! Congrats, you just made a cozy 2-toned fleece scarf with fringe!
