These snoods are fairly quick to sew and would make great gifts for any age. They’re also pretty cheap and easy to make. I made mine using this fleece blanket from Ikea. It costs £2.89 for 170cm by 130cm, which would make up to ten child sized snoods.
Of course, you don’t have to add the beard but who wouldn’t want the option of accessorising their snood with a variety of moustaches? Don’t fancy being Santa today? In one easy move you can become a sophisticated Victorian gentleman instead.
To make one you will need;
Fabric scissors or rotary cutter
White fleece and stuffing for Santa’s beard
Black felt for moustaches
Tailor’s chalk or fabric marker
All seam allowances are 3/8″.
Width: I measured level with Casper’s nose to his shoulders to get the height of the snood. This was about 5″ (12.5cm). I then doubled this and added 1″ (2.5cm) for seam allowance. So the width of my fabric was 11″ (27.5cm)
An easier option would be to just cut a white beard out of white felt and not worry about making a stuffing version.
You can then make as many extra beards and moustaches as you wish and wear your snood with pride.
