The instructions that follow are for a 2 yd piece of fabric because it makes the best use of yardage. If you have a smaller piece, just make sure the scarf is 8″ x 60″
1. After removing selvedge edge, cut a 2 yd piece of 60″ wide fleece into 9, 8″ strips.
2. For fringe, cut 1″w x 3″h 8 times. (8 fringes)
3. Fold fringe up to 3′ cut line and cut a SMALL slit on fold.
4. With each piece of fringe: Fold up to slit and pull it through making a knot.
HELP!!! All of my sewing friends!! If there is a better way to describe these instructions please let me know.
