My mom made a friend of hers an Ohio State Buckeyes fleece blanket for Christmas. She knows I find all kinds of uses for scraps of fabric so she's always saving me her remnants. This time was no different. As soon as I saw how large the remnant was I knew I needed to make a scarf out of it. I've been wanting to make an OSU one for awhile I just haven't bought the fabric, so this was perfect.
I didn't want this project to take much time, since I'm all about quickies, which is why I made this fringe one. Years ago I saw tutorials about how to make one and I've kept it in my mind all this time. After having made one now I question why the heck it took me so long to actually get it done. It seriously took no time at all. The most time consuming part was cutting the fabric.
I cut 3 strips of fabric 7 inches wide and 67inches inches long, stacked them on top of each other, and stitched one long line down the center.
Then cut strips on either side of the center line about 1 inch wide, making sure not to cut the center seam.
Shake it out a little bit and seriously that's all there is to it. No hemming, no trimming, no nothing. Super simple, and I love it.
I'm really wanting to make some pink ribbon ones for me, my mom, and sister, how cute would those be? Not to mention if you're looking for a quick winter birthday gift or Christmas gift this would be perfect and cost effective if you have quite a few people you're needing to gift to. With the temps being single and negative digits, and so much snow I feel like I'll never see grass again, I'm so glad I have this to keep me extra warm.
