Green DIY: Snood

I was recently perusing the interweb aisles of Urban Outfitters and came upon this Urban Renewal Sweater Snood and thought I could make a similar one but more in the style of this Wool in the Gang snood. I went to my local Goodwill and bought two sweaters. One in a burnt orange and another in a very light pink. 
1.Cut out strips from each sweater to the width and length desired. 2. arrange the pieces as you would like them (I believe I had 5 on each side). 3. sew right sides together with sewing machine 4. the way I did it I had one end with finished edges already from the sweater but the other end needed to be hemmed. Really very simple and took me about an afternoon/evening to make. 

I can't wait to wear this snood when we get really chilly weather. It stays up right against your neck and I will be sure to be both stylish and warm this winter. Hooray!

Thanks for stopping in! And hope you enjoyed this newest edition to the green DIY's.

  3. Lovely idea and it looks so cosy!

    I have been looking for something like this as I want to make some comfy warm trousers for my toddler with woolly sweater sleeves but wasn't sure how to use up the rest of the sweater!

    I have a question though (as a sewing novice): any special thread/needle/foot requirements to sew wool, which I've never done before?

  4. you snood came out so cute! wow that sounds really weird, hehe. i LOVE that burnt orange color so very very much! a really great cold weather color!

  5. this is so great...super cute! Snoods are my fave!
