Making Scarves for Kids

I am addicted to scarves. I love them. Naturally I wanted to make some for my kids, but having my kids wrap anything around their necks makes me a little nervous. So I came up with this safe kid scarf. It's easy enough for anyone to sew on a sewing machine or could even be hand-stitched in very little time. All you need is some fleece and some thread. 


Thing One's scarf is about a 3T-4T I'd say. For that size I measured and cut out two pieces of fleece 3 1/4 " wide by 36" long.  I lined them up, back to back and pinned in a few places to keep the pieces from slipping around. Then I sewed a line every 3" starting from one end. Once all the lines were sewn I cut the two ends into 1/2" pieces to create fringe. That's all there is to it. 



Now are you ready for the cool part?


To keep it snug and safe on your little kiddos, just pull apart the two pieces in one of the sections and tuck the other side through it. 



No losing your scarf, no getting choked. Kid-friendly. And easy enough to make one in lots of colors if you want : )


 Stay warm out there! I have a fun winter series planned for the next couple of weeks. I'll be back to announce that on Friday. See you then : )
