I saw this adorable cowl scarf in a boutique in downtown Milford, Michigan when I was there over Thanksgiving with my family.  My dad’s girlfriend bought it and I had one of those “I could make that” moments, and I was too cheap to pay $20 for it.  My version was $3.  It is so cuddly and warm.

Supplies:
10” wide Fleece (58 inch length)
Assorted Cotton Fabrics
Coordinating thread
Scissors
Sewing Machine
Pins

1.  Cut four cotton fabrics 4” x 16”.  You could use one long piece also but this is a great way to use up some of those scrap pieces.  Iron them.

2.  Sew the 4 pieces of cotton fabric together with a 1/4” seam and press the seams open.  Then press the long sides of the fabric strip under 1/2”.

3. Cut out a 10” piece of fleece.  The fleece is 58” in length so the piece will be 10” x 58”.

4.  Pin the cotton fabric to the fleece making sure it is centered.  Stitch down both sides to secure it in place.

5.  Next cut 1/2” strips in the fleece being careful not to cut into your cotton fabric.  Leave about 3” uncut on each of the ends so you can sew them together.

6.  After you have cut all the strips sew the two ends together matching up right sides.  Cut the last strips.

Now if you despise sewing you could always glue the cotton fabric onto the fleece with fabric glue.

A sweet little cowl to keep someone cozy.  And for $3 it qualifies as a Pennywise present!  Oh and it is reversible!
