I was left with a few pieces and didn't want to waste them so decided to make a snood.
I trimmed the largest piece to make a rectangle, folded in half (print on the inside) and pinned in place.
Tip from my mum: if you pin your fabric as shown you don't need to take out your pins when sewing - genius (I'm sure most people already know this but it was a revelation to me! Plus I was having fun with my new camera and love the picture of the pins so had to include it)
Sew along the pinned edge leaving about 2-3 inches open at one end.
Twist the fabric a few times.
Next pin the two open ends together with the patterned sides facing inwards and sew together.
Turn the fabric right side out you will be left with a small hole that needs to be hand sewn.
Once this is done your snood is complete!!
It could be left like this but my fabric wasn't big enough to make a decent sized scarf so I adapted the idea shown in nette's blog and used the rest of my fabric to make two more mini snoods to add volume. I attached them all together at the back and this is what I was left with . . .
