My boys' favorite winter accessories are hats + scarves so every year I make a few scarves for them to rotate through the chilly months. Last fall I found this amazing wool jersey fabric at Mill End. It is slightly cabled on one side and striped on the other side. The jersey is soft and machine washable so I knew it would be perfect to use for scarves for the boys. After making half a dozen 5-minute scarves last year [thanks to Sarah's post] I decided to add a new one to their collection.

These scarves really do come together quickly. All you need is some jersey fabric [I've used cotton + bamboo jersey before], rotary cutter [or scissors], straight edge, thread and sewing machine. For the boys' scarves I cut out strips of jersey 14" long and 52" wide [if you want a fuller scarf buy one yard of fabric]. Fold the fabric in half [wrong side out] and sew along the 14" side. [If you have a spiffy serger you can serge the edge but it is not necessary.] Turn the scarf loop right side out and wrap it around your neck [or in my case my boys' necks] a few times. Cute + easy, the best combination in my book!

P.S. Appah loved the boys' scarves so much he requested one for himself. So yes, there are days when all three Shim boys are matchy-matchy.

If you love football, you probably have a favorite team from the National Football League or two and have a list of players who like to have seen. A great way to show your loyalty to this team is the use of NFL Jerseys cheap of their team colors, sports, logo and name.
