Neck Warmer - Tutorial Tuesday

Every weekend I wear a fleece neckwarmer while I'm skiing. It snugs around my neck to keep out the wind and I can pull it up to protect my face on extra cold days. It's just the ticket for times I can't be bothered messing with the ends of a long scarf.

The one I purchased cost about $15 dollars and is black. I looked at it and realized it used about $1 worth of fleece and 10 minutes of time to sew, so I set out to make warmers to match all my coats!

Let's make winter Neck Warmers!

Supplies:

Fleece material
Scissors
Needle and thread or sewing machine

Instructions:

Cut a rectangle of fleece 27 x 20 inches long.

Fold in half, right sides together, so that you have a piece 27 x 10 inches long.

Sew along the long end of the folded fleece.



Turn the "tube" right side out.



Fold in half again and sew the ends together.



Turn right side out again so that the seam is inside the "tube". Your tube should be about 10 inches high by 26 inches around. These measurements can be adjusted for smaller or larger heads, little munchkin heads, big Hubby heads...whatever you'd like!



Slide over your head and go... Skiiing! Sledding! Snowshowing! Tubing! Whatever, just do SOMETHING to get out into the beautiful winter weather this month.

    If I wore that in southeast Texas, people would think I was getting ready to rob a bank because it just doesn't get that cold here....sigh.

  14. Your blog is a dose of happiness! Thanks for paying me a visit today and liking my red. :)

    I read your profile and got a big smile. I am the mother of 3 grown daughters. My oldest is married and now has 3 sons, ages 7, 4 almost 2. I know she would enjoy reading your blog and sharing stories of 3 boys, but at their young ages, she rarely gets to the computer. Can I give her hope that things get better? I'm clueless with boys!
