Step 1: Making the Hood
Sew the seam across the top of the hood.
Sew the seam down the back of the hood.
Turn under a narrow hem and finish the front edge of the hood.
Step 2: Making the MP3 Player Pocket
Turn over the long sides and pin them in place.
Turn the corner in diagonally to form a triangle.
Turn over the short sides and pin them in place.
Sew all the way around the pocket.
Pin the pocket to the hood. I centered mine on the back seam on the inside of the hood. This will further protect my player from the elements and avoid having the earphone cord let in a breeze when the cord comes from the outside to the inside of the hood.
Sew a seam around the sides and bottom of the pocket. Try out the pocket for size.
Step 3: Making the Scarf
Sew the center seam of the scarf.
Finish the edge of the scarf if you choose. With polar fleece you can also cut fringe into the end.
Sew the scarf onto the bottom of the hood. Be sure to carefully measure and match the center back seam of the hood with the center of your scarf so it is the same length of both sides.
Step 4: Making the Mitts
Use your hand to size the outline of the mitt.
Cut a slit where the base of your fingers will be.
Turn up a narrow hem along the slit on each edge.
Sew around the outside edge of the mitt.
Try it on for size.
Flip the top up to allow your fingers access for finer motor tasks.
Now you are all set to keep warm this winter while shoveling snow to your favorite tunes!
