to make a Harry Potter fleece scarf that you can wear to Hogwarts!
The movies may be completed, but costume parties never end. Or if you are
planning a visit to the Wizarding
World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, you might need to get
your Hogwarts school spirit on!
For each scarf, you will
need 1 foot of 60" fleece fabric in each of two colors. This will actually
make more than one scarf depending on how long you want them.
We chose Griffendor (dark red and yellow), and Slytherin (emerald green
and silver). You'll need a sewing machine, scissors and thread in
either of the colors of your scarf. Fleece is very easy to sew into
fun projects because it hides mistakes easily and doesn't need the edges
started with three feet of each color of fabric which eventually became
5 scarves (could be 6 if you don't want them very long).
First, cut your fabric into
4 inch strips (see photo). Cut the alternate color into 4 inch strips.
Next, pair up alternate colors of fabric and sew a long strip. Then
do that again until you have at least 6 rows of fabric sewn together. Be
sure to place the "pretty" sides together before sewing each seam. Then
cut them perpendicularly into 1 foot long striped sections.
Sew the big sections together
until you have it long enough for a scarf. A scarf is typically 5 feet
long. You can adjust the length as you need it or until you use all of
Then, fold the long scarf
in half lengthwise so that the "pretty" side is on the inside. Sew
all the way down the length of the scarf -- except for the two end colors.
Now, take a scissor and cut each end stripe into thin strips for fringe
(about half an inch wide).
Finally turn the scarf right-side
out and trim off any threads. You may want to press it with an iron to
make it flat. Now, pair that with a long black wrap dress from a
thrift store that you can cut up the front to make a perfect robe!
You are ready for wizard school!
