Tutorial: Ruffled Fleece Scarflette / Collar
- 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 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 :)
