Picture of A Lovely Warm Skull Face Snood.
Photo 8.jpg
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. ( maybe not one this big.)

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.


Step 2: The skull.

Draw your skull face on paper and cut it out.

If you are happy with the result then trace around it onto the white fleece and cut it out.

That's one creepy, and yet, totally cute, skull snood!

Dear AriedeB,

I agree; my perception vacillates from seeing a silly, friendly ski mask to seeing an absolutely terrifying ski mask.

I think that all ski masks are scary though.

Thanks for the comment

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,

Thank you for the comment.
I was thinking exactly the same thing about the main image picture, ( it was really just an experiment to see if a GIF would work in thumbnail.) I will change it now.

Kind Regards
