christmas ninja part 3: the scoody

When ninjas find something that they like, they do it a lot. Inspired by the Scoodie I drafted something that looked more like a hood from a snowsuit.

The process is easy: Make inner, make outer, sew right sides together matching seams as closely as possible, turn and top stitch!  Those orange ‘W’ looking things were my attempt at a visual break… the scarf pieces are quite long. After I cut the left and right hood pieces out, I used the rest of the width for the scarf parts.

The great thing is that they’re reversible – if you don’t feel like cute owls today, you can turn the pylon orange side out – also good if you’re lost in a blizzard.

It’s also upside-downable – if the scarf ends are pointing down you have more face-room, for chinooks, but if the scarf ends are pointing forwards you have more face coverage, for sub-arctic days.

So here are some fine specimens, thank you to Tigger for modeling.

velveteen & voile…

I finished my mom’s bday present a couple of weekends ago… it’s an infinity or figure-8 scarf. It’s called that because it loops around your neck, half twists, and then loops around your neck again, and spread out it looks like an infinity symbol, or a figure 8. It’s fairly simple to sew, it’s basically just a rectangular tube, but it’s the fabrics that really make this one a home run… Anna Maria Horner’s Innocent Crush in voile and velveteen!

Here it is all folded up. When I finished sewing it, I held it up and was like WOAH, this is way to big and too bulky!!! But I used exactly the same dimensions she did on her website, so I was confident and then tried it on… and it was heaven!

Here it is all looped around. The blue is the velveteen, the grey is the voile… so very very soft! Happy bday mommy! I’ll be sure to try to get a picture with it on her!
