Vine Scarf

I made this scarf from soft fleece leftover from my days in the apparel industry. These pieces were literally taken out of the pre-trash pile that was destined for the landfill

2 - 6” x 60” piece of contrasting fleece or felted wool
Straight pins
Matching thread
Sewing machine with walking foot

Pin fleece together about every five inches along the length.
Draw image on one side to follow with machine or freehand it.
Sew design on.
Cut away one side
Cut away remaining double side
Be careful not to cut all the way through both sides.
Clip away excess along edges.
Cut away all extra threads.
