It goes together super quickly and it’s a perfect project for a beginner sewist. Here’s what you’ll need to make your own!


Fleece and Flannel Cowl Scarf Supplies


  • Flannel fabric: 13″ x 44″
  • Fleece fabric: 15″ x 44″
  • Small Flannel Fabric Pieces: 2 pieces 4″ x 9″
  • 2 pieces of crochet lace: 9″
  • button decoration

How to Make A Flannel Scarf


Place your flannel and fleece fabrics right sides together and line up the long edges of both fabrics. Sew together with a 1/2″ seam allowance. Pull the flannel slightly and line up the other long edges. Sew with a 1/2″ seam.


Put your hand in through the center of the two fabrics and grab the opposite short end. Pull the end through until the short ends line up. Match up the flannel and fleece and make sure the seams line up.


Pin the edges together. Sew around the ends with a 1/2″ seam allowance, but leave an opening of about 4″ for turning.


Turn the scarf right side out through the opening. Hand sew the opening closed.


Now your scarf is super cute and you can leave it that way if you want!


I added this fun contrasting plaid binding too! To sew that up, sew a piece of crochet lace on each long side of one of the small plaid pieces. Make sure the lace points toward the center of the piece.


Place the other piece on top and sew the two long sides together just inside the seams for the lace. Turn right side out and press. Press under the short end on one side 1/2″.


Wrap the binding around the scarf and tuck the open end into the folded end. Sew the binding in place.


Sew a cute button onto the front of the binding for a little extra fun!


That’s it – so easy right? You can make a bunch of gifts in just a little while!
