This year’s holiday projects. No knitting. No crochet. All fleece.
Why? Because fleece is cheap, quick to sew and easy. Plus, it doesn’t fray. No “heartpains” when things go missing
This is just part of it. There are 4 more fleece pants and two more hoodies in the wash. They didn’t make it in time for the shoot.
Hoodie fleece jacket.
I’ve posted this up on my other blog. Check out the free pattern, instructions and sewing video (my first!) on youtube.
Polka dotted bias used to line and cover the neck seam. I have a huge stash of polka dotted bias tape in various colors.
High collar version without the hood. Great for lining ski jackets that already have a hood.
Love this plush royal purple fleece. US4.98/yard. 1.5 yards made two jackets with lots of leftovers.
Neck gaiters! These are so much safer than scarves that can get tangled. Scarves are nice when you are strolling down a wintry street trying to look fashionable. But when your kids are playing the scarves tend to unravel and drag all over the place. These are also super easy to make. Takes 5 minutes to sew up one!
Kitty cat purple fleece hat and pink bear fleece hats. The lining was made up of some leftover baby flannel. Came out of the wash rather crumply.
I neeed a head model but no one was willing. So I had to get Mell-chan whose head is to small. Lol…
Hope these keeps us warm in snowy Hokkaido. Happy Holidays!
