I made this after seeing the scoodie tute at vegbee's website http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2007/09/scoodie.html, and then spotting this super-cozy fun fur and matching fleece in the remnant bin that I was sure my 8 year old would love.  I did modify the pattern slightly-- instead of making the scarf from two pieces of fabric, I only used the fun fur, and cut one piece that was twice the final width, so one edge of the scarf is just a fold.  Then I couldn't fit the hood inside the scarf when it was inverted, because the fun fur is so bulky, so it's attached with top-stitching.  I hope some of that makes sense!

Anyhow, she's a kid who finds most things uncomfortable, but she loves her scoodie, and it matches her coat better in real life than it seems to in the picture.

Cute! She looks very happy about it, too!

Wasn't the fun fur a pain though? I used some the other day and it looked like I'd killed elmo....

Thanks!  The fun fur was a beast-- it would get all tangled up with my sewing machine foot (I only have a normal foot, I'm guessing I should have used a walking foot or something).  It feels so soft, but I won't be in a rush to use it again.

The schoodie is fab!  Looks very comfy too!

And fun fur is evil.  My sister who coaches high school volleyball, makes her seniors fun pillows each year.  (translation: she picks fabric and plays gopher while I make them Cheesy)  Anyway, a few years ago she decided to use fun fur for the backs of like 8 pillows.  It looked like a muppet massacre in my sewing room and I decreed, NO MORE FUN FUR!
