The Fleece Scarf With Fur Pocket project is a fun project for any trendy sewist to try. Let this simple tutorial show you how to sew a scarf with the added bonus of fur pockets! Keep both your neck and hands warm in style. Angel Hickman Peterson will lead you through each step. You can always watch the video tutorial for this project.
Step 1: Cut two 12 inch wide , 60 inch strips of fleece. (I like long scarves you might want to shorten this if you prefer them shorter.)
Cut two pieces of faux fur that are 12 inches wide and 12 inches long. Once you cut the fur, be sure to shake the fur outside to avoid a mess. (you also might want a lint roller handy)
Step 2: With right sides together pin the two pieces of the fleece stripes together and sew, using a .5 seam allowance.
Step 3: At one end of the scarf, pin the fur right side to right side of the fleece, being sure that you leave the the top open for turning. Note: Be sure that the nap (direction the fur lies) is going in the same direction on both ends of the scarf. It will look funny if one side is up and other side is down. Just pet the fur to determine the nap. Does petting it make the fur stick up more or lay down flat and smooth?
Step 4: Then sew all the way around (again leaving the top open) using a .5 seam allowance. On the side seams be sure to start .5 inches down from the open top.
Step 5: Now it's time to make the pocket. Flip the fur end of the scarf so the fur is on the outside and the right side of fleece is touching the right side of fleece. Pin.
Top-stitch through all the layers, using a .5 seam allowance. Take your time as you are dealing with a lot of material. Repeat on other end of scarf.
Trim your threads. Using a needle pull the fur out of the seam to hide your stitches (depending on the the length of the fur you might need to pull it out of the side seams too.) You're finished!
Ways to switch up and modify this pattern:
Change the width of the scarf. Make it wider to make it more "wrap" like, make it skinnier to make it less bulky.
