First, we folded over the fabric so that the salvage edges met. Cut off the salvage edge with a rotary cutter. Keeping the fabric folded your kids should cut the fabric into three scarves. Each scarf will be about 7 to 9 inches in width.
Then they will use a ruler and the rotary cutter to cut one-inch wide fringe along the ends. They will need to make them about 5 inches long. Once again, as long as the fabric is folded, they will be able to cut both ends at the same time. (Just make sure they don't cut the folded end!)
Once the fringe is cut, they will need to use the rotary cutter again to make a small slit above each strip of fringe. Then they will take each strip and pull it through the slit. This adds a nice decorative touch to the ends of your scarves.
Here's our pile of completed and folded fleece scarves.
