Make these fun fashion blankets, scarves and pillows for yourself or to give away as gifts. You don’t need to sew or glue them. All you need is some fleece, a ruler and a pair of fabric scissors. You will also need some stuffing to make the pillow. Fabric scraps, old nylons, or polyester fill work well.

To make a scarf or blanket:  1. Cut fleece to the desired size using a ruler to make sure your line is straight.

2. Fringe the edges as shown, and you’re done! (photo A)                             

To make a pillow:  1. Cut two pieces of fleece the same size. Holding both pieces together, cut fringe on all four sides as shown, discarding the corner pieces. (photo B)
