DIY fleece scarf
This fleece scarf is so easy and fun, I intend to make one of these babies for myself too. I made this lovely pink DIY fleece scarf for my daughter, to wear it when we travel via airplanes as some companies tend to go overboard with the air conditioning! It gets really chili and my poor little angel is so sensitive, she almost lost her voice the last time we took a flight.

This little stylish fleece scarf is so soft and cuddly and gets her warm so quickly, Ellie loves every bit of it! I didn’t expect the pink to match the brown yarn at all but since these were my only options I had to go with that. But after making this fleece scarf DIY I think the colors do complement each other pretty nicely, don’t you think?
How to make a fleece scarf?
Making scarves from fleece is probably the easiest way to create new accessories for colder days! Because it doesn’t fray, fleece is the easiest fabric to work with and since it’s so soft and cuddly, a fleece scarf is the perfect accessory on cold seasosn!
If you have a scarf that you love and want to replicate it, just measure that scarf then cut a strip of same measurements from fleece. From here on it’s just a matter of decorating your new scarf with pom poms, a fringe, embroideries etc.
How to add fringe to a scarf
Adding a fringe to a scarf makes this accessory so much more interesting, fun and stylish. You can opt for different materials like yarn (as I did here), pom pom strips or embroidery floss (you can even use this floss to make tassels and add them as a fringe to your scarf)
Fleece scarves would make great gift ideas for friends and family, are inexpensive, and are easy and pretty quick to make, even for a klutz like me!
Fringe fleece scarf tutorial
- strip of pink fleece 8″x 50″
- brown yarn
- rotary cutter or scissors
- cutting mat
- steel ruler
- fabric marker
- crochet hook – optional
How to make easy fleece scarves:
Cut the fleece
- Lay your fleece on the cutting mat and using the ruler, measure the length and width of your scarf. Cut the fleece with the rotary cutter, using the ruler and the marks as a guide.
- Fold the ends about 1/2″ and make tiny snips on the fold, about 1/4″ apart. Be very careful not to cut too big of slits!
- Cut the yarn the desired length (depending on how long you want your fringe to be).
Adding fringe to scarf
- Take 2 threads ad fold them in half, then pull through the little snips you made on the scarf. A crochet hook might be helpful here.
- Take the end of the yarn and pull through the little loop you just created with the yarn. Gently pull until the yarn forms a tight knot, so you won’t tear the fleece at the snips.
- Once all yarn is added, trim it to the desired length and to be of the same size – optional.
- That’s it! Your cute, warm fleece scarf is ready to wear!
