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!
Start with a piece of fleece. Cut two pieces 7″ x WOF (usually 59″) and two pieces 7″ x 8″.
Start with your small pieces. These are your pockets. Fold one short end down 1/2″ wrong sides together and stitch in place.
Lay 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.
Repeat on the other side. Place the other long piece on top, right side down and pin or clip in place.
Stitch 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)
Turn right side out and stitch the opening closed.
And you’re all done!
Cupcake loves her new scarf! And I love that I don’t have to worry about missing gloves! And Pumpkin loves hers, too!
The matching headbands are from a Made for Mermaids pattern.
Cold weather – check! Warm ears – check! Warm necks – check! Warm hands – check!
