No Sew Scarf – Homemade Christmas Gift

This year I am doing as many homemade Christmas gifts I can do.

First off, it is a lot of fun,

Second it helps reduce money spent on Christmas

and Third… it is a gift truely from the heart.

I wanted to walk you through the steps I did, in case you would like to make some for your family and friends.

First off, I purchased 2 yards of fleece material.

I cut long and wide pieces of material. I picked how wide I wanted the scarves, but it is ultimately up to you the way you want to present your own scarves. I cut mine 27 inches wide.

After I got all the material cut that I wanted, I cut little fringes in each end piece of the material.

I kept the fringes at a 1/2 inch each. After you cut all the fringes, you will knot each fringe. You can add embellishments to each fringe if you would like before you tie the knot. I chose not too.

Just continue to knot each fringe until they are all complete.

Then you are finished and ready to wear your scarf. Here is my beautiful daughter and I sporting our new scarves :).

I just know my Aunts and Grandma will love this as I am making then no sew fleece blankets as well. Great gift for this beautiful winter Christmas season.

    I’m a pretty crafty Mama, so I generally make a lot of gifts anyway, but this year due to finances – yes I am making as many homemade gifts as possible. I also love receiving a handmade gift because I know the time and effort (and sometimes blood, sweat and tears) that goes into it. Love the scarves!

    I am also making as many homemade gifts as I can, in fact I think ALL our gifts for others this year will be homemade. My husband and I are not exchanging gifts, and we did purchase some already for our son.

    I usually make some homemade gifts every year. This year it was some simple desk accessories using small canning jars. I made sets of 3 – rubber bands, paper clips, binder clips. I gave a set to my Mom, and one each to my son’s teachers. But I LOVE the scarf idea. I’m not a sewer at all but I can handle cutting and knotting material! Thanks for the idea!

    OK, I’m guessing you probably don’t get a lot of guys on this blog. Being a guy I’m not much of a clothing guru or scarf maker. Got any ideas for homemade gifts that guys like me could make that would go over well? I’ve done portraits before ,drawing,burning, and painting etc. just want to try something different. Something that might be appreciated more. Thank you, keep up the cool blog.
