A yard of fleece can yield 5 or 6 scarves that will be as long as the width of fabric; i.e. 54" or 60".
First I trimmed off the curly selvedge edge.
I folded the yardage in half, then folded in half again. The piece you will be cutting will now be in four layers ( 1/4 of 54") by the yard length (36").
I used my handy 6" x24" ruler and rotary cut 6 scarves, the width of the ruler.
The next step is to mark a line, 5" from both edges, to cut the fringe. I decided my handy June Tailor Shape Cut tool might make easy rotary cutting work of this step. I did not have to mark a line.
I laid out the scarf so that both edges were even. Then I lined the ruler up to the edge, at the 8" line. If you rotary cut from the 8" line, up to the end of the ruler - that should make 5" of fringe. I cut the fringe at 1" wide.
The next step is to pinch or make a tiny fold at the 5" line - make a tiny snip with the scissors. Take the fringe and slip it back through the tiny snip. It should look like this:
I bought 2 yards of fleece and made 11 scarves. It took about 3 hours of fun.
