This great gift idea combines fleece and knit fabric to make a beautiful scarf. Get the tutorial at diydanielle.com!
I purchased some beautiful Maleficent fabric with the plan to sew my mother-in-law some gifts with it… then once it came in, realized that most projects that use knit fabric are clothing. She prefers not to wear clothing with prints on them so I had to get creative about what to make. This was a huge struggle! Knit is such a great clothing fabric… it’s an odd fabric to use for other projects sometimes. She requested a scarf so I decided to try this. I’ve seen some other knit fabric scarves, but I didn’t feel like knit was thick enough to truly act like a winter scarf so I used fleece to back it- I wanted something warm for the winter. I love how it came out!

- Knit fabric: I used two different fabrics that matched. One was the front fabric and the other for the heart on the fleece side.
- Fleece fabric- coordinating
- Iron on fusible webbing
Now I just used a zig zag stitch around the heart.
Once that was done, I faced my knit fabric and fleece fabric right sides together. I pinned them.
I serged around the whole scarf, leaving a small area to turn and top stitch. You could just sew a regular stitch if you don’t own a serger.
