Winter Accessories - Hat and Scarf

It's that time of year to bundle up.

How about some cute winter accessories to match with a new coat or jacket?

They made for one very happy girl in this house.  She loves her new winter things.  It makes going outside to play in the snow that much more fun.

A perfect new hat with a beautiful flower on the side . . .

And a new scarf to keep her extra warm.

Want to make your own?

When I first saw this hat I fell in love with it right away.  I knew I had to make one to match with my daughters new winter coat.  It took me a while to find an inexpensive white hat, but as soon as I did I snatched it up.  I made the flower using a scrap of white flannel with the instructions that I found HERE.  Love it!

My daughter has this thing about neck scarfs. (Is that even what you call them?  I'm a southern California girl so I really don't know.)  It's the only kind of scarf she'll wear and the only one we have is an old one that belongs to my husband.  I decided it was time she had her own.

To make one I bought half a yard of fleece fabric.

I cut out a 18x20 inch piece.  I then folded it in half and sewed a quarter inch seam.

When I was done I had a tub that looked like this.

I then tucked the bottom side up through the inside . . .

Lined up the edges, pinned them and then sewed another quarter inch seam leaving a small opening to turn it right side out.

Once I had it turned right side out I sewed up my opening and was done.  Simple.

Nice and warm for a cold winter day of playing in the snow.


  1. That looks so WARM! I linked to your tutorial over at Craft Gossip Sewing:


  2. Adorable! I've got a hat that I wouldn't wear but maybe if I added a flower I would!

  3. Very cute! You could even do a matching scarf and gloves!

  4. just featured this on my blog-- with other winter hat tutorials! thanks for sharing it.

  5. Hi! I like the tube scarf but the instructions are vexing me. I used to make scrunchies and it's not possible turn it right side out through an opening because it's a tubular ring. The best I could figure out to do was to sew the long seam of the tube, turn it right side out and then sew the short sides as far as you can, then slip stitch the remainder (or in the case of the lowly scrunchie top stitch because no one will ever see it.)

    1. You've got it right Sheila. That's the perfect way to do it.

  6. Thanks, Amy! So it's not possible to do it the way you describe above? Just wondering if I'm missing something.

    1. Sheila-
      I guess I'm not understanding your thought process. It sounded to me like you were describing the instructions above. I'm not sure sure how to help you. Wish we could get together and work on it :)
