Fleece Scarf Tutorial - need a last minute gift?

First of all, I am terrible at tutorials and this one is no different! I don't plan very well when taking the pics...

Step One: You will need two different colors of fleece (1/4 yd. of each) Joann's has a great selection of fleece. Hobby Lobby also carries it. (Ignore the cuts in the fleece. I did not get a before picture.)

Step Two: You will then lay the two pieces on top of each other wrong sides together and sew a zig zig stitch directly down the center of the fleece long ways. (Yes, this picture is of a different scarf- I told you I was bad at this :)Your stitch will look like this down the center.

Step three: You will then lay out the scarf and cut slits to make the tassels on each side. The slits should be about 3/4 inch wide and 3-4 inches long. You do this all the way down both sides of the scarf.

Step four: Give it to a cute girl in your life and it will keep her toasty warm this winter. Just a few things I learned... I made the tassels a little thinner on the others and I like it better that way, so maybe cut 1/2 inch wide slits if you want to. Also, the thinner the fleece, the better the scarf hangs and feels. This project cost me $2.60 per scarf because the fleece was 50% off. My daughter loves hers and gets lots of compliments on it.

Happy sewing! I would love to see yours if you make one!
