I started off by purchasing a 1/4 yard of fleece. I chose a cute pink check for my daughter and a blue and red stripe for my son.
After trimming off the selvage, I cut 2 pieces off the bottom of each scarf to create the pockets.
After pinning them into place on each side of the scarf, I sewed them on, along each side and the bottom, leaving the top open for the pocket. Then, I folded the fleece in half lengthwise, pinned the right sides together and made a straight stitch.
I turned the scarf right side out and cut the bottom of the scarf (below the pocket) into a fringe.
These were really easy to make and turned out super cute! My kids can wear them casually around their neck and put their hands in the scarf pockets, or can wear them wrapped around their neck like a regular scarf.
