Materials

  • Fleece scarf or 1/2-yd. fleece fabric
  • Fusible interfacing (optional)
  • Kai-lan Scarf template
  • Felt squares in black, red, brown, beige, and white
  • Fabric glue (such as Sobo)
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Puffy paint pens (assorted colors)

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

    Following the diagrams on the scarf template, trace the shapes onto felt of designated colors.

  4. Step 4

    Following the image reference on the template, arrange and glue the felt shapes together. Glue Kai-lan's head at one end and the flower shapes at the other end of the scarf. Let the glue dry for about two hours.

  5. Step 5

    Use black puffy paint pen to draw Kai-lan's eyebrows, nose, and to outline Kai-lan's eyes. Use pink puffy paint to draw Kai-lan's tongue. 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 a hot 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, follow the ironing directions for the 3-D fabric paint or wait a couple of days before ironing the scarf.
