How to make a snood for babies/kids

Hello. We're doing great!
We went to a picnic with our friends last Sunday.

It's getting cold now so I made a snood for Miyu.
Miyu's snood.

And for me.
Miyu and me with my handmade snoods.

This one is very easy to sew. I show how I made it(* v *)!!!!

The snood measures 45cm (18 inches) long, 10cm (4 inches) width.
So you need 47cm(19 inces) x 22cm(9 inches) piece of fabric. I used Japanese wool 100% fabric. You may also make it with fleece or flannel etc.

Then choose the decorations. This time I put a piece of lace and two cute buttons.

Let's begin with sewing the lace on the fabric.

I sewed both sides.

Fold it in two putting the right side inside, and sew it around leaving an opening to turn it out.

Turn it out from the opening.

And close it.

Put a pair of snaps on it.

And at last put the buttons. That's all!

I made one more with a battenburg lace and a wood button.

oh so cute! You really inspire me with your creations and you gave me the envy to sew again ^^ Do you always sew by hand, not using machine?

Nanners said...

My mom and I absolutely love reading your posts. Not only do you post such beautiful crafts, but we love seeing pictures of your family. We've been following your blog for quite a while now, a few months before your daughter was born in fact.

While those buttoned scarves are very cute, snood usually means a net bag designed to hold long hair neatly.

I love that you have found time to be creative with having such a beautiful little girl to take care of. I love the snood! Ignore that previous post - you can call it whatever you want! Love those eraser stamps too! Thanks for sharing all your great ideas!

Mairuru, thank you! I've been following your blog for a while now. I enjoy seeing your pictures and the posts. I think you explain things very well in english and what a great way to keep your language skills up! Your stitching is beautiful and I so enjoy the small things I've bought from you shop.
So thank you for being so generous.

Hello Mairuru ! I hope you and your daughter are fine. I like reading you for a while now, it is like travelling in Japan for me. And I have a little one-year-old girl too. I'll present her one day her little friend from Japan, Miyu. Love from Karine in France

Well this is my first visit. Great stuff over the blog. Illustration has something special and I think we can't avoid this kind of initiative.

I love your mairuru blog! So wonderful to see a mom who loves the quiet handmade life and loves her family!

Please don't worry if your precious little girl doesn't walk when other do. My oldest didn't walk until she was 18 months, and she is a musical genious, among other things. God has a plan!

Very nice. I think i will make one for my child...



Meagan said...

I just found your blog when I was looking for inspiration for things to sew with some vintage 60 gingham I just got.... I'm so happy I found you! You have really great stuff. Your daughter is beautiful too! My daughter is 16 months, and I understand how hard it is to find time for sewing. But, I too prefer to hand sew. Glad to meet you, I will be watching for new posts! :)
