Winter is here. Even though I live in California I thought I would make something for places where it get’s cold. This neck warmer came to mind. It is a very simple sewing project and I am going to show you two ways of completing it. One is easier than the other. I came across the second way of completing this simple project on the Kam Snap website. You all know how much I love using Kam Snaps. They make my life so much easier. The other came from multiple sources and an old post of a wrap scarf that I did years ago. If you would like to see that project you can check it out here.
For this project I used flannel and Sherpa that I purchased online and picked up in store at joann’s but you could head to Amazon fabrics or onlinefabricstore.net to get exactly what you need for your project.

What you will Need: How to Make a Flannel and Sherpa Neck Warmer
- 1/4 yd Sherpa fabric
- 1/3 yd Flannel
- 3 3/4″-1″ buttons
- Standard Sewing Supplies
Step 1: Cut your Fabrics
From the Sherpa cut an 8″ x 30″ piece. From the flannel also cut a 8″ x 30″ piece making sure that the plaid, if you are using a large plaid, line up top and bottom plaid lines so that they are straight. That is the reason for the extra fabric.
Step 2: Stitch the Fabrics
Place the two fabrics right sides together and stitch all the way around using a 1/2″ seam allowance and leaving about a 4″ opening for turning. Clip the corners without clipping through the stitching.
Step 3: Turn Right Sides Out
Turn the rectangle right sides out.
Step 4: Close the Opening
Close the opening using ladder stitch.
Step 5: Finish the Scarf Option 1
Add three button holes and three buttons. This finish option and diagram came from Sew4Home.
Step 6: Finish the Scarf Option 2
Instead of the button holes add three special engraved button Kam Snaps to snap the neck warmer together. Put them in the same places as the buttons and button holes in the previous steps. This idea came from the Kam Snap website here. You have now finished your flannel and sherpa neck warmer.
