hey guys, Grin

I have been making these for a while now- this was my first one and like a true idiot I gave the others away to friends before taking photos and am now trying to persuade them to take pics for me!  Embarrassed
In advance I want to say sorry about the AWFUL lighting! This is something I need to work on!
My mannequin head arrived today  Cheesy and I'm soo happy with it except for she has no shoulders which makes the scarf look a bit funny!  so you can get an idea here she is :

But down to business!
The hood pattern was very easy I just drew around the biggest hood I could find in my wardrobe onto my black fabric twice. Then got some sheet padding, did the same, and then got my lining and also did the same
 ***tip for the lining make sure when you draw the pattern that you reverse it for one of the sides otherwise your lining will be one right side facing out and one wrong side facing out! (I learned that the hard way!)***

Sorry about the bad lighting- I really need to sort out that issue!
and here is an example of how I attach the scarf, by setting it to one side rather than centring it you can really get some good draping going on when you wear it!

Hope you likey! I literally can't make enough of these! Everyone keeps asking for them! SO good for Chrimbo/bday presents- I personalise each one to the person I make it for with little embelishments such as pretty buttons or cogs or finding beads with their initials on. I cant tell you how easy these are and for the end result it is so worth it!
Thanks for looking! Any questions etc just let me know and I will do my best to answer as clearly as possible.
