I’m back to gift you the final item for our 2017 Holiday Freebies! Have you had fun with us so far this week?
In case you’ve missed the last four days, go take a look: Slouchy Headwarmer / Emoji Pillows / Clothing Size Tags / Camera Strap
On the last day of our freebies, we are sharing how to make this super cute, quick, and easy Button Cowl. We’ve even got two ways for you to wear it. Are you ready? Let’s get to it!
- 2 – 26″ wide x 6″ long pieces of fabric (can be flannel, fleece, sweatshirt fabric, etc. Really anything will work, but obviously the cozier the better.)
- 2 buttons / snaps
- Coordinating thread
With fabrics right sides together, stitch around entire outside using 1/2″ seam allowance. Leave 3″ opening for turning.
Trim away bulk, making sure not to snip through seams.
Turn right-sides-out, through the opening.
Tuck in your seam allowance, press.
Top stitch along entire outer edge, making sure to catch your opening in there.
There are two ways you can add buttons/snaps to the cowl to create different ways to wear them. I created an easy diagram to help you with placement for your buttons and button holes, depending on the style you’re wanting for your cowl.
Here’s a quick peek at what some of our testers made for themselves with this pattern:
As always, we would love if you shared your creations with us! Head over to the Patterns for Pirates Facebook Group and show us what you made! Happy Holidays, friends!

Love this! Perfect gift idea!
Thank you so much, my mum hates scarves and I did see a You Tube video similar to this but I follow photos much better and this is the first pattern of yours that I have made 🙂 It was a wonderful sew and quick too.
Mum goes to a lot of football games and loves it, a great gift for her birthday.
