Basic Construction

Patterns in this collection are based on a simple hat and scarf shape. The magic happens when the included appliqué pattern pieces are added to transform the animal characters. Once you’ve mastered the hat and scarf construction, there’s no limit to the possibilities.

Learn Basic Appliqué Instructions

Lions and tigers and giraffes, oh my! Appliqués will make your sewing project take on character. Even if you’ve never attempted appliqués before, you’ll have immediate sewing success after following our sewing tips. Plus, sewing on fleece is very forgiving—our kind of fabric. The hats and scarves require a yard of fabric or less. Perhaps you can use some of your leftover fleece scraps for the appliqués.

Sew kids' fleece hats and scarves/Cuddle Buddies/Sewing With Nancy ZiemanThe appliqué pieces and pattern pieces for the hats and scarves are included in the book. You’ll find that with a few tweaks, the hat design can easily change from a giraffe to a lion. Sew kids' fleece hats and scarves/Cuddle Buddies/Sewing With Nancy Zieman

The Sewing With Nancy crew—most of them kids at heart—thought the scarves and hats were made for them. Gregg Happ, our floor director, decided that the giraffe was his buddy.

    All four of these animals are just precious, but I must say the the “Monkey” is just the cutest! My great granddaughter is celebrating her first birthday in February. What an adorable treat he would be to keep her warm and cozy on these very chilly days!

    I would love to win this ingenious book, but I know we all can not be winners. Congratulations to the lucky recipient!

    They are all so cute!! I think the tiger is my favorite and happens to be the school mascot for a couple of grandchildren and all seven of great grandchildren. We could have a whole pack of little tigers.

Hope to join a sewing group – or start one at my church! Oh dear, you’ve got my “retirement” muse going this morning!

    These hats and scarves are absolutely adorable!! My little friend Lilly is all things dogs, so for sure I would have to make her the dog hat with the adorable paw prints on the scarf. But every pattern would appeal to some child somewhere. Thinking these would make a wonderful addition to the hat /mitten tree at our local elementary school.

    I love the dog! I haven’t been blessed with grandchildren but with 3 brothers and a sister, I have been blessed with nieces and nephews with children! With 15 of them, I can’t afford to buy them Christmas gifts. I think with this book and enough time, I could make each a special gift of their favorite critter in their favorite colors!!

    Oh My! How creative you are! These are just so lovely. I fell in love with the Giraffe. My granddaughter was over tonight for Easter Dinner (This is when the program was showing in my area) and she said the Bunny was her favorite! There is a children’s home just a couple of miles from us and I thought what a wonderful gift to give some of the little children there. I would measure their heads and let them pick which one they would like and make them for one of the houses.
