Easy Scarf Alternative

Scarves and little children don't seem to go together in my mind. Think about it, what other time do you let your children wrap long objects around their necks?

When Tim decided to take Emahry sledding during our last snow fall, I whipped up this scarf alternative in about 5 minutes. I love how easy it is and I like knowing that it's going to stay on without becoming too tight around Emahry's neck.

fleece fabric
needle and thread
sewing machine (optional)

For Emahry's "scarf" I cut a piece of fleece 20" x 7". Then I simply overlapped the short ends by a couple of inches and hand stitched them together, making a tube. To wear, you pull the tub over your head so that it surrounds your neck. You could easily make these scarf alternatives for any sized child or adult. While a sewing machine would make the seam neater, fleece is so forgiving that handstitching works fine. You also don't need to worry about the edges because fleece doesn't unravel.

An added bonus to this scarf alternative is that Emahry can put in on by herself.

This easy scarf alternative works for me!

What a great idea! I hope i can remember it at the beginning of next winter. It's a PERFECT alternative for my 2 and 4 year olds. Maybe if there are fleece remnants at walmart tonight I'll just make them now and pack them away.

We had these growing up and we used to call them "snoods" was that only in England?! Did that fashion statement not make it to the US?!
