Fleece Scarf

Easy No Sew Fleece Scarves

Making a fleece scarf is incredibly easy, whether for a gift, yourself or as a service project. Even older children can help, or make them alone.  These economical and useful scarves are easily adapted for men, women, boys and girls, simply by the pattern or color of the fleece, using beads, how the ends are tied or left straight – the sky is the limit. Personalize this gift by matching the personality of who is going to wear this; making it a desired and much appreciated gift.

Supplies for Fleece Scarf:

At least ¼ yard fleece of desired thickness and pattern. (Good quality and thicker fleece is the best for this project)


Ruler or measuring tape

Marking pencil or chalk

Masking tape

Small crochet hook or pair of tweezers

Pony beads, optional    

Men’s Fleece Scarf:

Cut fleece 9” in width and 54” to 60” length Trim endsFleece Scarf 1Leave ends plain and as they are


Mark 3 inches from edge of fleece and place masking tape across to help gauge how far to cut and to keep each section even.

Cut at 1 inch intervals from the edge to the masking tape.Fleece Scarf 2Leave with cuts OR In the center of the top edge next to the masking tape, cut a small hole with the very tip of sharp scissors or use a seam ripper to make a small hole.Fleece Scarf 3Put the end into the hole   Fleece Scarf 4

    I truly love this idea. I did get some material and my daughter Diana made a blanket. It turned out precious. She still uses it today.

    Thanks for sharing! I am sure she would like to make another one.

    • That is terrific Diane that your are getting your daughter into sewing and crafting young while they are brave to try things and to make something she is proud of her talent and skill. I appreciate your sharing that wonderful idea with us.

  7. You have explained nicely how to make these scarfs, they look good.

    These turned out very beautifully Carrie! They seem really simple to make. That’s always a plus!

  9. Carrie, what a precious idea. Love the no-sew aspect of this project. I like to sew but my machine is heavy. I don’t get it out often. Pinned! sinea ♥

    • Thanks Sinea, I’m so glad you like the post and I’m with you on the heavy machine. My sewing machine is an old one and built like a tank, but it’s a great one, when I can lug it out, lol
