Introduction: Hooded Scarf With Pockets

This is a fairly simple sewing project to keep your head, neck and hands warm.

Step 1: Supplies

2 pieces of 12" x 60" (or 1 piece of 12" x 120") of fleece
2 pieces of 12" x 9" of fleece (for the pockets)
Matching thread
Sewing machine
Measuring tape
Something circular with a 9" radius to help you cut a round corner

Step 2: Making the Hood

Match the two long pieces together, right sides of the fabric on the inside and wrong sides facing out.  Cut a round corner going from 9" on the long side to 9" on the short side.  I used my hamper that happened to have 9" radius to guide my cut.  Pin together the two rounded edges and the 3" remaining of that short side.  Sew the pinned edges, and that's your hood.

Step 3: Making the Pockets and Finishing the Edges

Place one of the small pieces of fleece at one of the short ends of the large piece, matching the 12" sides together with the right side of the fabric facing each other.  Pin and sew together the 12" end.

Fold the remaining 12" side of the small piece 1/2 - 3/4" in, wrong sides of fabric facing itself.  Pin and sew this to make a nice edge.

Fold the short piece up from the seam with the wrong sides facing each other.  Starting on the same side as the rounded part of the hood, fold in the 9" edge and the corresponding edge in 1/2 - 3/4" so that the two 1/2 - 3/4" edges are between the large and small pieces of fleece.  Pin  this edge.  Continue pinning all the way up until you reach your stitches from the hood.  Sew your pinned edge.

Repeat this on the other end of the scarf.

Now for the other side of the pockets, take one end and fold the edge in the same way as before and pin them together.  As before, continue pinning the edge but this time all the way to the other pocket edge, which of course, you should fold in like the other pocket sides.  Sew the pinned edges.
