Hats and Scarves
The hats are just 1/2 yard tall cut to the circumference of the head for the width plus 1". I made that piece into a tube with a 1/2" seam. Then I folded under and hemmed (with a zig-zag) one end up 3 3/4". Then we snipped the top end down a few inches about 3/4" apart and tied the top with a skinny scrap.
The scarves are merely an 8" strip cut the full width of the fleece. I didn't hem the sides or anything. Then the boys cut about 4" deep into the fabric about 3/4" apart and tied a knot on each little strip. You could use a 16" wide piece, make one seam to turn the fabric into a really long tube, turn it, then cut your ends and tie your front and back together for a double thickness scarf.
