With autumn fast approaching I wanted to make something warm and snug. (Faux!) fur is always a big deal in the winter and updates a jumper and jeans into something a bit more…. classy? This snood is so easy to make! My material cost around £10 for half a metre, which I think is about the going rate, but I have a bit left to play with, and it’s totally worth it!
1. Measure out a 1m x 40cm rectangle of faux fur fabric.
2. Fold in half lengthways with the right sides (fur) together, This should give you a long, thin piece of fabric.
3. Sew along the long edge leaving a gap of about 10cm at each end.
4. Turn the tube inside out so the fur is facing out.
5. Now take each end of the tube and pin together the outer edges. These need to be right side facing again. Pin from one corner to the other and sew the edges together.
6. Turn the edges so the fur is facing out again. This should leave you with the snood pretty much finished, except for a small hole along the length where the two sides meet.
7. Hand sew this hole threading the needle from underneath one side of the fabric over to the other, then through the top of the other side under to the original piece. Keep doing this action loosely.
8. When you reach the other end of the hole, take both ends of your thread and pull tightly. Secure the ends by threading them into the fabric.
And that’s it. I’ve sewn mine up with yellow thread to make it all the easier for you to follow along, but it you use a thread similar to the fabric colour that would be much nicer. Stay warm!
