Fleece Blanket Transformed to Scarves

If you are still out hitting those after Christmas sales, here is something to look for...fleece blankets. I bought one last year on sale for $3.99 and was able to transform it into eight scarves. Do the math...that is only 50 cents a scarf! I gave them to my co-workers accompanied by another small gift.

Here is the striped blanket I started with. I also bought a really cute red plaid fleece blanket last year, pictured in the photo above. It still looks good after a year of wear.

I used a cutting mat and a rotary cutter from my quilting supplies. Of course, old fashioned scissors would work perfectly too. I cut them into about 6" strips.

I then cut the ends about 5" up in small strips. I left the fray of the blanket stitch on the bottom for character.

Now go out and find some cheap and adorable fleece blankets to transform. I would love to see your pictures when you are done.

  1. What an awesome idea! I've seen some that looked similar before, but never thought of doing it with a blanket. And getting it on sale.... Score!

    I am also passing on the Liebster Award to you. It is meant for blogs with less than 200 followers to promote each other and encourage new friendships in the blogging community. If you'd like you can check out my most recent post and pass it on to a few of your favorite, not so well known blogging friends to promote their blogs as well!

    Have a fantastic day! I LOVE checking out your stuff. Especially the party ideas. I am a tad bit obsessed with parties...

  2. What a great repurposing project! So smart.

  3. Love the simplicity. After reading your post on the handwarmers, I thought that it would be great to make a pair of coordinating handwarmers for one of your simple fleece scarves. Doubly fun!


I love to hear what you think.I read every single comment and they make my day!
