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.
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 sewing machine or Needle and thread.
Step 2: The Skull.
If you are happy with the result then trace around it onto the white fleece and cut it out.
Step 3: Let the Sewing Commence + Enucleation.
Cut the black felt into a rectangle of the dimensions shown; Pin the Skull to the middle of the black fabric, ( do not pin too close to the edges or they will get in the way of the needle.)
I sewed around the eyes and nose ( I just turned the hand crank to do this; I don't think that my foot skills are up to it.)
It came out quite well.
Next , sew around the skull edges.
It is now time to remove the eyes with the scissors.
Step 4: The Drawstring and Tube.
I fitted the drawstring and fitted the slide clip.
I turned it inside out and simply sewed from top to bottom.
Step 5: The End.
