Snack Scarves

Patterns for Pirates posted a free pattern for an infinity scarf with a pocket (link here). I’ve made 3 as gifts for Christmas and my giftees loved them. These are so fun to make! I like to call them snack scarves because I like to keep snacks in them 🙂

I will be offering them for sale in my etsy shop soon!

animal scarves

I made scarves this year as gifts to my friends and family (kept a fox for myself :D). I got the ideas and fox pattern from prudentbaby.com.

I hand-sewed my ears so they stick up a little bit. I also edited the pattern to make the wolf nose wider and guidelines for the bear.

I used soft flannel fabric and ultra cuddle fabric for underneath (so soft!). The scarves are a yard and a half long and I used 1/4″ seam allowance on everything except for the long body I used 1/2″.

Christmas decorations

I went a little crazy and decorated almost my entire place. These are just a few things I did :]

Made a cute penguin print table runner and got those cute top hat baskets from Michaels

Found this sheer snowflake fabric at Joanns to cover the two end tables (it got glitter everywhere!) and made a candy cane candle holder for the little fellow. I used a glass bowl and taped the candy canes to it and tied a bow around them to hold in place.

Searched high and low through all the picks at Michaels and created this wreath for the front door.
