Rag-Tie Scarf

Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers. The funeral is this Saturday in Iowa so unfortunately we are unable to attend due to my husbands school schedule. My FIL is on a plane right now to Iowa to be with his father and siblings during this difficult time. We are keeping our routine the same and living life to the fullest just as Jerra would want. Thank you again.

This is a re-post but all of my friends have been asking me to show how to make this again so here it is!

As most of you know I am a big believer of making cute, easy, inexpensive things that you and your kids will love. So before Christmas I sat down and tried to come up with something along that line for my daughter. The first thing I made her was a rag tie scarf. As you have already seen in this previous post that I did, it is really easy to do rag tie. First you start off with however much fleece you would like to use. I bought half a yard since I wanted to make a skinny scarf since my daughter is only 2. Btw...I got a steal at Joann's on a fleece! It was originally 15 a yard which was on sale for 7.30 and I only bought half a yard which made this less than a 4 dollar scarf! Anyway, back to the tutorial...

Place equal size pieces of fabric wrong side towards each other.


Cut 2.5 x 2.5 inch squares from all four corners (or bigger depending on width of scraf) Cut 2.5 inch slits 1 inch apart on all four sides.


Tie the strips together following this tutorial and you have an adorable, inexpensive scarf to keep yout munchkin warm!

Woo Hoo! I finally got a picture of her lol
