Fleece is relatively inexpensive and is often on sale. I made these scarves from 1/8 yard of fleece, costing only $.60!!The trick to cutting fleece is very sharp scissors and "long cuts" (opening your scissors all the way and making a long, clean cut). I measured each piece about 34" and cut points at each end.
The easy way to cut points is to fold the fabric in half and cut to a point in one cut. Then take one of the triangles you cut off and use it as a measurement for the other end, so that your ends match perfectly.
I measured about 7" from the point and about 1" from each side and cut slits (brown strip helps you to see where the slits are located):
What I really like about this scarf is that it is small enough to throw into my handbag or glove compartment but, most importantly, it is "cozy warm"!
