  • Fold the rectangle in half, matching two short ends, with right sides together. Sew together along the matched short ends using a 1/2 inch seam allowance. You MUST backstitch at the beginning and end of this seam to secure it.

  • Turn the hat right side out. Cut a fringe on one end, making cuts about 3 inches long and approximately 1 inch apart. (For the smaller size hat, make the cuts about 2.5 inches long. For the larger size hat, cut about 4 inches.)

  • Gather up the hat at the bottom of the fringe. Use the 1 inch strip to tie the fringe together. This will create a "pom pom" at the top of the hat. Trim any of the 1 inch strip that is longer than the rest of the pom pom.

  • Cut a long rectangle for the scarf, using the full width of fleece. It should be 11 inches tall and approximate 60 inches long. Trim off the selvedges on each short end of the scarf. Cut fringe into each short end, making cuts 3 inches long and approximately 1 inch apart.

Each hat and scarf set will take 2/3 of a yard. However, if you want to make 2 sets from the same fabric they can be made from 1 total yard. Cut the two scarf pieces first, then cut the hat pieces right next to each other on the remaining fabric.
