I know - bad cell phone picture. Z is on a cheer team called Mini Blacks. Their team colors are red and black. When I found this flame fleece I had to get it (plus it was on sale). In a couple of weeks they are cheering for the Chuy's Parade and I thought a scarf would be nice in the warm up area. I know he can't wear it on the parade route, but before and after would be nice. He loved it so much that he wore it the night I finished it as well as the next day to school. He told me that he was even going to wear it in class.
There are several things I love about this scarf. First, it's super easy to make. Take a 2 strips of fleece 9 inches wide and stitch them together, turn, stitch the ends shut with a zig zag stitch, cut the edges to fray, stitch a LARGE button hole in the scarf and done. Second thing I love, the button hole to slide the scarf through. Nate thinks that it's over kill, but I LOVE it! I also think it will help little bodies keep their scarf on instead of having them fall off as they play.
