Materials

  • Fleece scarf or 1/2-yd. fleece fabric
  • Diego Scarf Template
  • Scissors
  • Felt squares in brown, tan, white, blue, yellow, green, and pale blue
  • Fabric glue (such as Sobo)
  • Fabric or puffy paints (assorted colors)
  • Iron
  • Fusible interfacing (optional)
Tip: Fleece comes in several weights. A medium weight works best.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Start with a store-bought fleece scarf or make your own by cutting a 48- to 54-inch piece of fleece about 6 inches wide. For a thicker scarf, iron in fusible interfacing (such as Wonder Under) between two pieces of fleece or stitch them together on a sewing machine.

  2. Step 2

    Print the scarf template, cut out the shapes, and set them aside.

  3. Step 3

    Trace the shapes onto felt squares of designated colors and cut them out.

  4. Step 4

    Arrange and glue the felt shapes together following the image reference on the template. Glue Diego's head onto one end of the scarf and the Animal Rescue Center badge onto the other end. Use puffy paint to draw Diego's nose, mouth and tongue, as shown. Let the glue dry for about two hours.

  5. Step 5 (optional)

    You can use embroidery floss or pearl cotton to add trim; simply stitch two rows of thread along the bottom of the scarf using a long running stitch.

  6. Step 6 (optional)

    You can create a colorful border for the scarf by cutting out two 12- by 2-inch pieces of felt, folding them in half lengthwise, and pressing them with an iron. Slip one end of the scarf into one of the folded rectangles and glue it in place. Do the same at the opposite end of the scarf.

  7. Step 7

    Press the scarf lightly with an iron on the low setting. For best results, wait a couple of days before ironing the scarf.
