If you are anything like me you are like me you've been rushing around like a crazy person trying to get everything ready for the holiday! I really dislike when our break only begins a day or two before the holiday. I feel like I can't get anything straight!
Soooo I've been trying to find gifts for my kiddos that are:
b.) Something that will last.
c.) Not a fortune!
Simple scarves to keep my kiddos nice and warm this holiday season :)
I purchased 6 yards of polar fleece from my local fabric store and got to work! Our living room ottoman worked well for a flat cutting surface. Of course I watched Home Alone while trying to be semi crafty!
I simply cut notches every 7 inches to know where each scarf would start.
I then placed my yard stick out for a straight cutting guide. (nothing is worse that realizing you cut as crooked as you do on a white board)
Once I cut the strip out I cut 1 inch fringes at the ends of each scarf, but I forgot to take a picture of that!
Then I switched up the colors :)
The 3 colors my students will be sporting tomorrow <3
- 1.5 yards of blue polar fleece
-1.5 yards of green polar fleece
-3 yards of pink polar fleece
-a pair of sharp scissors
-a yard stick
-26 warm bundles of giggles!
The hubs trying one out in our "chilly" living room.
and enough scrap to create to fur baby scarves! haha If nothing else, it made for a good picture :)
