I've had some time to get crafty this weekend, with a couple simple little DIYs (Instagrammed here) and some preparatory shopping at JoAnn and Goodwill on Friday. But also, made this amaaaaazing fake fur snood the other day and am loving it. Simple instructions below!
Okay, so maybe it's a "snood" (some combination of... scarf?? and hood? snarf and hood? whatever.) or I've seen it called a cowl, which makes sense to me, but apparently these are this year's infinity scarf. ;) Cute in chunky knit or, in fake fur! ASOS has several...in the $30-40 range, they have a few choices... examples here and here.
So of course I wanted to make myself one. I had some fake fur left over from various projects last year, and found this to be the easiest 10-minute project ever. Literally made it during less than the first half of some New Girl episode on Hulu so I know it was fast. Wanna try??
Fake Fur Snood Tutorial
- 1/3 yard of fake fur. Approx. Less if you want it skinnier.
That's it. Seriously, super easy. OK, so, instructions...
- Cut down the center fold of your fake fur yardage--the short side, on the fold that came from the fabric store,parallel to the selvage edge.
- Put your two pieces right sides together and sew along both long sides, making a skinny tube. I use 1/2" seam allowances.
- Turn the tube right side out...
- Pin right sides together on the short end, and sew almost all the way around the join--leave about 4" open.
- Turn under the open edges about 1/2" or whatever your seam allowance was, and topstitch along those 4" on the right side of the fur.
Seriously, go make one. So easy and SOOO warm and cozy! I've been wearing it a lot!
