This fuzzy fleece wrap has a bonus feature: a pair of pockets that double as hand warmers.

What you’ll need
Piece of fleece (ours is 60 inches long an 8 inches wide)
Embroidery floss and sewing needle
3 buttons
Scissors
How to make it

Fold the ends of the scarf, lining them up with the sides, as shown.

Use a whipstitch to sew along the sides, creating two triangular pockets.

Sew a button just inside the center of each pocket. Cut a corresponding buttonhole above each, as shown.

Add a third button to the outside corner of one of the pockets, sewing through both layers of fleece. Cut its buttonhole in the opposite pocket, snipping through both layers. You can use this button to secure your scarf in place.
