With the winter winds howling and the snow falling, what better way to stay warm than a cozy reversible cowl? Choose any two warm fabrics you like to match many outfits! I used navy microfleece and a patterned sweatshirt fleece. Enjoy your cozy cowl, make some for friends, and stay toasty warm this winter!
Step 1: Materials
- At least 1/2 yard of two coordinating, warm and cozy fabrics
- Coordinating thread
- Sewing necessities - straight pins, thread, sewing machine, hand sewing needles, measuring tape, sharp scissors, etc.
Step 2: Cut Your Fabric Pieces
Cut two fabric pieces 11 1/2" - 12" x 32" - make it shorter, longer, or narrower by adjusting
Make sure you have sharp scissors or a rotary cutter for neat edges. Be mindful of any patterns or borders when cutting printed fabric.
Step 3: Ironing & Sewing
Iron your pieces - this makes sewing a lot easier.
Put right sides together, and pin in place as shown
*If you are using stretchy fabric, be sure to use a ballpoint needle on your sewing machine*
Sew a seam on each long edge, using 1/2" seam. You are making a large tube.
Step 4: Seaming
Turn your tube right side out
Fold ends in about an inch and iron
Pin ends together and hand-sew around to sew closed, hiding the seam
Step 5: Finishing
Iron your cowl flat, and wear proudly because you made it yourself,. Stay warm and cozy!
