Neck snugglies - Tutorial

How do!
Today i am venturing to give you a tutorial! (wow, get me!)
So what is a neck snuggly? we I'm sure there is a proper name for them but its one of these
my two keeping warm with their snugglies
I received a fluffy one for Christmas but wasn't really allowed to use it as one or the other of them would be cold and NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED it. So, I set about making them their own. So much better than a scarf, it doesn't undo itself, drag on the floor, can go over their ears, act as a sash and be a serving cloth for a pretend waiter!

So, if you fancy one you will need:
Fleece or something similarly warm/soft/snuggly
the ability to sew it up.

Firstly cut it out -
I made the kiddywinks ~1m by the width of the fabric (150cm)- its a big rectangle

fold it in half (right sides together) so it is 50cm by the width of the fabric, sew it up so it makes a long tube.
turn it right side out.

line up the seam, making sure there are no twists in the tube, pin it.
This is the trickiest bit

Begin to sew the tube up, working around the circle. It gets a little tricky towards the end but sew as far as it will go, you end up with something like this
then pull it so its right side out
this leaves a little gap which you can them sew up - i hand stitched mine, and then you too can be warm

Hope this keeps you warm

  1. I remember something similar from the 80s - I think they were called snoods, but snugglies is much nicer.
