FUN WITH FLEECE

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)

Make them for dolls, or for decorating throughout the house.    It’s an easy, fun way to add color to a room.  You can also glue on felt shapes or letters to personalize each one.
