What I Love: Super easy to make with 4 pattern pieces
- The middle piece of the hood did not match up with the sides of the hood at the notches. I just cut the middle and added 3/4".
- Added pockets to the ends of the scarf, which are just 8"x 10" rectangles in fleece. About an 1.25" of the top was folded over and then topstitched prior to attaching the the scarf.
- Used 1/2" seam allowances instead of 5/8" for no particular reason except that I had blue painters tape marked for 1/2".
Mr. So and I are sporting ours inside our house... I think we may have worn them a total of 2 times since they were finished... maybe we need to go to Chicago to get more wear out of them. :) There's also not a good way to wear the scarf. If you try to wrap both of them around the neck the pockets are super close to your face. I ended up just throwing one end to the back and keeping one end in the front. RTW scoodies have a detachable hood that can be placed at different intervals to help with this, but I didn't want to do the extra work.
Coming up with the different fleece and flannel combinations for the different scoodies was pretty fun. There are only 5 swatch combinations because one of them (black and white plaid flannel) was made twice. :)
