With a blizzard arousing outside, I decided it simply would be too cold to go outside in freezing conditions without a ski mask to cover my face. However, I did not have one, and if I were to order a ski mask, I would not receive it for days. Hurriedly, I dug through my old fleece clothing pile, determined to sew my own ski mask. It only took 30 minutes to make, and soon I was making some for all of my family members! By making your own ski mask, you too can be sew warm in the snow! 

  • Fleece pajama/sweat pants
  • 2 soft headbands or scrunchies
  • Fabric scissors
  • Sewing machine equipped with thread
  • Marking tool (i.e. Sharpie, pencil)
  • ruler

Step 1: Fitting and Cutting

Dig through your drawer, and find an old pair of fleece pants that you do not care to cut up. Although solid colors are fine, wintery patterns are playful and fun! 

Unless you are good at doing things without looking, you may need to grab a friend for this step. Pull your head through the waistband opening of the pants. Your head should almost fit through the top of one leg, but you will need some room from the other side as well. The waistband will serve as the bottom of the hat, surpassing the chin. Have a friend secure a soft headband around the pant legs where the hat should stop. After you have decided on the size of the hat, pull it off your head and breathe!

Cut the extra fabric of the pant legs off just above the soft headbands.
<p>I think that's the most terrifying mask I've seen to date. There's movie magic there.</p>
