I love snoods; they are so warm and versatile, especially for cycling or camping.

If you were born after the eighties you may not have encountered them;  I will explain. . . It's a tube of fleece fabric that can be a scarf, a hat. a kerchief or a hood or hijab.

I theorised that if I cut two eyes holes in and sew on a face then it also becomes a  friendly ski mask.

Any face will do but I have chosen to use my Instructables'  logo for this snood, ( the badly drawn skull face.) 

This is only the second thing that I have ever made with a sewing machine so I guess that it can be classed as easy, which makes it a perfect project for a beginner, like me.

Step 1: The materials and tools.

Fleece fabric; these were old fleeces from Ikea that did not suffer from a little being trimmed off them.

A slide clip; from a pair of old trousers; these were too annoying on the trousers but I put them aside knowing that one day they would shine.

A shoelace.

A sewing machine or Needle and thread.

<p>Thanks for this tutorial. It was my first real sewing project, and it <br>came out awesome! Loved it so much that I made one for my 4 year old <br>daughter as well.</p>
How dare you expand my to do list....
Hey you,<br> <br> Less talking . . . more sewing.
That's one creepy, and yet, totally cute, skull snood!
Dear AriedeB,<br> <br> I agree; my perception vacillates from seeing a silly, friendly ski mask to seeing an absolutely terrifying ski mask.<br> <br> I think that all ski masks are scary though.<br> <br> Thanks for the comment<br> <br> FOH
This is cute! I think it would be more helpful to have a picture of the finished product as your main image, so people know what this Instructable is about!
Dear Scoochmaroo,<br> <br> Thank you for the comment.<br> I was thinking exactly the same thing about the main image picture,&nbsp;( it was really just an experiment to see if a GIF would work in thumbnail.) I will change it now.<br> <br> Kind Regards<br> <br> FOH
I love the idea!
Dear Ysabeau, <br>I'm glad that you like it. Thanks for the comment.
What a great idea.
Dear Lord Drake,<br> Thank you for the nice comment.
