Go to the fabric store, and buy one yard of pretty fleece, preferably in a neutral color. Ask the sales person to cut it in 12 inch increments. Take one of the cut pieces, lay it out, and trim off the ends. Then make fringe about one inch apart, six inches long on each end. Tie a knot in each fringe. Now you have a nice, pretty scarf to give as a gift. Duplicate your efforts on the remaining two pieces. You now have three Christmas presents to give, at a cost of under 10.00!
I liked your idea about the scarfs! I was wondering if it would work if you made slits in the scarf and wove a different colored fleece through it. Maybe making three slits horizontally all the way down the scarf. Measuring to make sure you had an equal amount of slit to weave through so they would come out even. Just an idea. I think I will go to the fabric store tomorrow and give it a try! Thanks for the idea. Linda Horn
how much will it cost to make a scarf with this design
Why didn't I think of this?
how do i keep the sides without the fringe from unraviling. email fiestyz28 @ msn.com (remove spaces). thanks gloria.
Just wanted to let the poster above know that fleece does NOT ravel. This is a great idea for the scarves. My sons think the crocheted ones are itchy.
