Tutorial: Ruffled Fleece Scarflette / Collar

December 09, 2009

This DIY scarflette is super easy and quick to make! This is part of my christmas gift for the little girls this year, but I made a larger one for myself as well and I've already been using it becaues it's perfect for the cold weather we've been having. These scarflettes are finished with a velcro closure to make it easier for the kids, but you can also use a button or snaps to finish it off.

  • One color fleece 21" x 4" for an adult or 18" x 4" for a child  (Fleece A)
  • One color fleece 46" x 3" for an adult or 42" x 3" for a child  (Fleece B)
  • 1 inch of velcro
  • Matching thread.
Step 1: Sew the hook side of the velcro onto the back side of the fleece A, 1.5" from the edge, arrange vertically.

Step 2: Sew a loose running stitch down the middle of fleece B. Gather the fabric to create ruffles, and make the final length be the same as fleece A.

Step 3: Place the ruffled fleece B on top of fleece A. Use a zig zag stitch to sew the two pieces together. You can now pull out the temporary thread you used to hold the ruffles in place (in step 2).

Step 4: On the end opposite endo fo the fleece (the end that does not have velcro), sew the eye side of the velcro on top of the ruffle, 1.5" from the edge of the fleece. Make sure that the velcro is lengthwise, so that it will match with the other piece of velcro when the ends overlap.

That's it! Easy right?

Fleece doesn't fray so you don't need to worry about the edges. It also cuts like butter. In one evening I managed to whip up half a dozen. Whew! I have a lot of cousins :)
