Pattern Roundup: Sewing Up Cozy Winter Projects

Fun Projects to Warm Your Season

Winter is a season that invites us to get creative and cozy. Whether you’re a seasoned sewist or just starting your sewing journey, here is a collection of cozy winter projects that will make chilly months feel warmer.

Fleece Infinity Scarves (and more!) from Simplicity

Wrap yourself in warmth by sewing a cozy scarf. They’re not only stylish but also incredibly soft and comfortable. Choose from a variety of faux fur textures and colors to match your winter wardrobe. These scarves make for fantastic handmade gifts, too! In the pattern you’ll also find a versatile cardigan jacket in three lengths, for sizes up to bust of 46 inches, and hips of 48 inches.

Flannel Pajamas from Sew Liberated

There’s nothing quite like lounging around in flannel pajamas on a cold winter’s day. Find a festive flannel fabric pattern, and you’ll be enjoying warm and comfortable evenings all season long. For sizes up to busts of 58.5 inches, hips of 61 inches.

Simplicity Cozy Poncho

I am house-sitting at a friend’s home this winter. It is on the end of a peninsula on Buzzards Bay in Massachusetts. Walking the dogs is much more pleasant when I’m bundled up in my new fleece lined poncho. Mine isn’t the prettiest but this pattern would level it up a notch or two! The pattern includes three styles, one with a hood, one with an asymmetrical cut, and shorter poncho with a rounded hem.

Winter-Themed Table Runners

Enhance your dining room with a charming winter-themed table runner. Pick fabrics with snowflakes, reindeer, or other wintery motifs to create a festive atmosphere for holiday dinners and gatherings. Threads has two projects for you to try: a Quick-Sew Table Runner or an Elegant Silk Table Runner.

Simplicity Microwavable Heat Packs

Comfort packs come in various shapes and sizes and are wonderfully cozy when made with minky or flannel. Pop them in the microwave for heat or into the freezer for cold relief. Filled with rice or flaxseed, they mold to wherever your aches and pains are.

Victory Patterns Felted Wool Mittens

Felted wool mittens are not only adorable but also incredibly warm. Use old wool sweaters or purchase wool fabric to create these custom mittens that will keep your hands toasty all winter long. This downloadable pattern includes embroidery designs for a decorative touch.

Simplicity S9531 Cozy Slippers

Keep your feet warm and stylish by sewing your own cozy slippers. These slippers have a fold-down cuff and come in sizes for children and adults. You’ll enjoy making these and slipping into warmth each morning. Consider using non-skid fabrics for the soles, to avoid slipping.

Beanie Hats from Wardrobe by Me

Sewing beanie hats allows you to create a custom-fit, warm accessory for your winter wardrobe. Play with various fabrics, colors, and patterns to match your style. This is an ideal stash-buster if you have scraps of fleece or stretch-knit fabrics.

If you’ve made any great group costumes, we’d love to see your work. Please consider submitting a Gallery post or tag us on Instagram with #memadethreads.
