Trim your piece of fleece to measure approximately 9" x 52". Depending on the size of the person the scarf is for, you can make the scarf shorter than 52". This is sometimes easier using a straight edge ruler and rotary cutter if you have one.
Along one of the 9" ends, measure up about 4-inches from the edge and make a line with a piece of masking tape running the whole 9" width of the fabric. Cut slits in the fabric from the end up to the piece of tape about every inch so you end up with 4-inch long fringe. Repeat this on the other end. Carefully remove the masking tape.
You can leave the scarf like this or embellish it as desired. You can try cutting your initials out of contrasting pieces of fleece and glue them near the fringe ends; or you can write your entire name using dimensional fabric paint. How about embellishing the entire scarf with a variety of buttons or by simply gluing small pom-poms to the ends of the fringe? Use your imagination to make the scarf special.
