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.
Cut along the lines you drew with the marker.
With the base of your scarf complete, let's get to decorating! Fold over the end of the scarf about an inch.
Cut six evenly distributed slits in the folded edge. Each slit should be about 1/2 an inch to an inch long.
Repeat the fold and the six slits on the other end of the scarf. Your completed slits should look like this.
Using a different color or pattern of polar fleece, cut 12 strips each about an inch wide and 6 inches long.
Take one of your 6-inch strips and push it through one of the slits in the scarf.
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.
Repeat the previous step for each slit on either side of the scarf.
Your personalized, warm and cozy polar fleece scarf is complete!
