Cowl Scarf: An Experiment

I woke up at 7am this morning and was at a complete loss as to what to do with the day. So I scrounged around in my cupboard of material and found some left overs from a school production about four years ago. I had made a list of things I want to make before I start work next week and I figured that these would be fairly simple to make without a pattern. I then found my mum’s bag of polar fleece and spent a couple of hours working out how I could make these unloved bits of fabric into something wearable.

I’m pretty proud of how it turned out. It is super warm!

Material Notes

Scraps, scraps and more scraps. The inside (the polar fleece) is striped because I had to sew several pieces together to make one big enough for the inside.

      I’ve posted some instructions for other projects but no one seems to use them. I think if I get enough people asking for how I did, I will :)
