Sewing Bee Fabrics Tutorial
Make Your Own Hand Warming Scarf With Pockets

How to sew a scarf with pockets

Scarves are brilliant and snuggly for cold days but gloves can be a pain if your doing something that means you need to take them on and off. So why not sew hand warming pockets in to your scarf?! These also make excellent easy Christmas presents too.

What you will need:

Cuddle fleece 180cm x 50cm

How to make it:

First, cut your cuddle fleece into 3. Cut the last 20cm off then divide in half so you have

Fold the large piece in half with right sides together along its longest side. Stitch closed along that length leaving the 2 short ends open. No matter how much I try, I nearly always seem to miss catching a bit in amongst the fluff, so I prefer to sew my seam then sew an over edge (overlocking) stitch after to reinforce it.

Turn your tube right way out.

Curl the tops of your pocket pieces under to make a hem and sew in place.

Pin the pockets right side together against the scarf (on the wrong side of the scarf if your pattern has an obvious back and front).

Sew down both sides and the bottom the same way you did for the long side. I did however find this was easier done with a roller foot on my sewing machine to make it easier for it to pass over the layers and fluff.

Repeat on the other end then turn the pocket so it sits correct way out on the other side of the scarf.
