As some of you know already, my son Logan is obsessed with all things Pokemon.
What you might not know is that this boy refuses to wear a scarf. And a scarf is seriously needed in Winnipeg! It’s regularly below -30C in the winter. He walks to school every day and doesn’t ever want to wear a scarf.
I figured I might be able to remedy this by making a scarf that he would actually like.
A Pokeball inspired scarf!
Well… I’ve got the boy wearing a scarf now! He even puts up with my jokes about catching a Logan Pokemon when I tie the scarf at the back.
Would you like to make one for your Pokemon obsessed friend, son, daughter, cousin, husband, wife, etc?
This is a quick one. Maybe takes 20 minutes or so from start to finish.
Super Easy. Straight line sewing and sewing around a circle.
A rectangle of white fleece – 60 inches (1.5 m) by 4 inches (10 cm)
A rectangle of red fleece – 60 inches (1.5 m) by 4 inches (10 cm)
A thin rectangle of black fleece – 60 inches (1.5 m) by 1.5 or 2 inches (4 or 5 cm)
A circle of white fleece and a circle of black fleece
Matching thread. I used black thread until I ran out and then started using white. Red works as well.
With Wrong Sides Together sew the red fleece to the white fleece along one long end.
Take that long thin black piece and pin it over the seam that you just made. It should be on the front (right side) of the fleece. The black strip will cover the seam and make it so the scarf doesn’t have any sewn seams showing. Sew the strip onto the scarf along both long sides. You can actually sew a rectangle in order to sew the ends down if you’d like. Step Three:
Mark the middle of the scarf with a pin. Cut two sorta large circles (I used a roll of packing tape to trace a circle on the white and black fleece). A CD or a container lid would also work as a stencil for making the circles. Cut the middle out of the black fleece circle. Arrange the white circle along the black sewn strip in the middle of the scarf. Place the black circle with the middle cut out over top of it. Sew in place around the outer and inner curves of the black circle.
Ta da! Super simple. And you’ve got yourself one super warm, fleecey winter Pokeball scarf.
