Fuzzy fleece scarves bring comfort on a cold winter day, but for some it’s a comfort denied due to poverty.
You don’t even know how to sew to make a warm scarf for others in need this winter. Community groups ranging from Christmas gift programs to homeless shelters will gladly take warm scarves, hats and mittens to help others brave the winter.
A no-sew homemade fleece scarf is an easy, quick service project for girl scouts of all ages to do.
How to Save Money on Homemade Fleece Scarves
Our Girl Scout troop purchased clearance fleece blankets in the summer for the project, though if you watch local fabric stores for sales, you may be able to purchase fleece inexpensively.
Easy Way to Make No-Sew Scarves
You’ll want them to cut the scarves into pieces 12 inches wide by the desired length. The girls can personalize them by cutting fringe on the ends, tying knots at the ends or even using fleece scraps to tie bows at the end.
Hint: Have your girls line up the fabric on a flattened cardboard box and follow the folds in the cardboard for a straighter line! Those Amazon boxes can come in handy!
