I’ve got a quick and easy sewing tutorial for you! Perfect for the first day of winter! Cupcake has been wanting a scarf, so I had the idea to sew her a scarf with pockets on the end.  Like built-in mittens.  Because she keeps losing gloves on the bus.  So I grabbed some fleece and started working!

Tutorial: Sew a Pocket Scarf #sewing #tutorialStart with a piece of fleece.  Cut two pieces 7″ x WOF (usually 59″) and two pieces 7″ x 8″.

Tutorial: Sew a Pocket Scarf #sewing #tutorialStart with your small pieces.  These are your pockets.  Fold one short end down 1/2″ wrong sides together and stitch in place.

Tutorial: Sew a Pocket Scarf #sewing #tutorialLay one of your long (scarf) pieces down right side up then place a pocket on the end right side up, lining up the raw edges.

Tutorial: Sew a Pocket Scarf #sewing #tutorialStitch around the entire scarf with a 1/2″ seam allowance leaving a 2″ opening for turning. (In the picture I left my opening on the short end, but the opening is better left on the long side between the pockets)
