I made this recently for my blog Style Bytes where I sometimes share my DIY ideas. Here's a summary:

It's not my idea originally, but in the stores they cost $100, I made mine for $5.  Its all hand sewn so you wont need a sewing machine.

You'll need:

Fabric - The easiest is to use a blanket. A thick wool blanket is best. I used a fleece blanket from Ikea. Colors used originally are blue, red and gray.

Yarn - The color doesnt have to be the same, its nicer if it gives a little contrast.

Buttons - Two buttons in wanted color and size.

How to do it:


Since I used a fleece blanket I put it double before I put on the pattern. If you use a thick wool blanket this isnt needed, but you should still do the stitching as itll look nicer. Draw a pattern and pin it on. I kept the pins in while sewing so that the fabric pieces wouldnt move out of place.

Once the pieces are ready you can start with the stitches. Its up to you what you think is nicest. I used something called blanket stitches. This is fast and easy and looks nice. You dont have to be too careful about having it looking perfect either. Stitch around all the edges.

Once youve stitched the pieces you can sew on the buttons. Then all you need to do is fasten the head to the body. Leave the ears free.

You can use the pictures of my pattern pieces below to make an approximate pattern. The width of the scarf is 23 cm (about 9″) and the length is 150 cm (about 59″). The head is 17 cm wide (about 6.5″) and 18 cm high (about 7″). You dont need a pattern between the upper body and lower body because its all one straight line. You can just cut from one end to the other without marking it up before.

You can make this in one night but it may take more like two. These are perfect christmas gifts.

Oh my goodness! At first thought it was supposed to be a CAT stole!

I'm still having to struggle to stifle the giggles! What a great idea!
