This was probably the easiest thing that I have ever made.  No straight lines!!  I purchased the fleece from joann's and I totally lucked out and found all remnant pieces.  It cost less then $3.00 to make!!! 

I made this for my husband for Christmas because he would probably marry bacon if he could!!  Cheesy

(and of course, the baby checking stuff out!!)

That is so hilarious! When I first glanced at it I thought about bacon, I never actually expected it to BE bacon, you know?
I love it!

So, do you mind my asking: How did you join the various pieces of fleece together? Did you just butt the edges together and zig-zag while catching a little of each fabric, or did you layer one piece on top of another and then topstich?

Did you make a tube of fleece (it kind of looks like there are two layers of fabric at all times- I can't quite make it out) Congrats on getting it all in remnants!

Sorry to bug you with so many questions...your project is fascinating and compelling, and I think it's an irresistible accessory.

No worries about the questions!  I tried responding a couple of minutes ago and DH almost walked over by me to see what I was typing and to see 'what i was going to make next...'

I layered the cream colored fleece on top of the reddish piece and top stitched it.  I almost left it as is, but I didn't like the randomness of the red stitches on the reverse side so I cut another piece of the reddish fleece and sewed the two 'right sides' together except for a hole big enough to turn.  turn and then stitched the small hole together.

I am thinking about making another one for my brother since it was just so quick and easy and I still have enough fabric. (He is vegetarian, so my sick humor will definitely shine through with that one!!  Also thinking about making one for a vegan friend but that may be taking it a bit too far!)

I love this! I'm vegetarian but eat a piece of bacon occasionally...but then I remember why I don't eat meat (the grease gets to me). I'd love a bacon scarf though. My fiance would appreciate a bacon scarf. He'd probably ask me to make him one out of real bacon though lol.

Too funny...  and it got funnier the further I read.  I don't think I could get mine to wear a scarf, but he is definitely a bacon-addict.  His favorite appetizer of all time is bacon-wrapped lil' smokies.  (Is there a smiley for "gag"?)

Awesome! I should make these for my nephews and brother. They also love the bacon. My brother makes a dish that I find totally disgusting--he stuffs thick pork chops with bacon, cheddar cheese, and cornbread stuffing. I really don't think you should stuff one pork product with another product!

Are you and hubby fans of Jim Gaffigan? He loves the bacon lol. Last time he had a pre-sale for his comedy show the password was 'bacon'!

My hubby forwarded me this link and I am making it tonight to try it out before xmas festivities.  Just thought I would share in case someone wants to share it with their SO. 

yummy looking bacon and cheese wrap:
