Step 1: 

Use the yardstick and a marker to mark and measure out a piece of polar fleece that is about 5 inches wide and 5 feet long. If you are making a scarf for a small child, you might want to adjust the length of the scarf so it fits accordingly.

Step 2: 

Cut along the lines you drew with the marker.

Step 3: 

With the base of your scarf complete, let's get to decorating! Fold over the end of the scarf about an inch.

Step 4: 

Cut six evenly distributed slits in the folded edge. Each slit should be about 1/2 an inch to an inch long.

Step 5: 

Repeat the fold and the six slits on the other end of the scarf. Your completed slits should look like this.

Step 6: 

Using a different color or pattern of polar fleece, cut 12 strips each about an inch wide and 6 inches long.

Step 7: 

Take one of your 6-inch strips and push it through one of the slits in the scarf.

Step 8: 

Pull the strip about half way through the strip. Leave about 3 inches on either side of the slit. Tie the two sides of the slit together and pull tightly.

Step 9: 

Repeat the previous step for each slit on either side of the scarf.

Step 10: 

Your personalized, warm and cozy polar fleece scarf is complete!
