Harry Potter scarf - fleece - How to make Hogwarts scarf
How to Make a Harry Potter Scarf out of Fleece
by Laurel Smith

Costume your whole family with a Hogwarts fleece scarf

Free instructions and Pattern 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 finished!

Harry Potter scarf patternWe 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 your strips.

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!

GREAT TIP:  A book called The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World (and Universal) was invaluable to me in our planning for visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The latest edition of this book now includes in depth information about both of the Universal Theme Parks!  I cannot recommend it enough!
