Fleece Neck Warmers and a Tutorial


Good Morning!

Today I have a quick and easy project to share with you . . .

 Fleece Neck Warmers!  

They are perfect for your kiddo's who like to spend time playing outside in the snow.  Perfect for adults too!  I wear mine all the time when I go on walks.  It keeps me warm and toasty.



Fleece neck warmers are so much easier to use than scarves.  They tuck into your coat nicely to keep the cold wind and snow out.  Plus you can pull it up over your nose if it's really cold.



To make your own you'll need . . . 

fleece
thread
sewing machine

For this tutorial I'll be making an adult sized neck warmer.

First cut to pieces of fleece 14 X 26.


Next, layer your two pieces of fleece right sides together and pin along the longest sides.

Once pinned, sew a straight stitch down both sides about a quarter inch from the edge.


Next, trim your seam allowance.


Turn the fleece right side out . . . 


Now fold your the fleece in half matching the two remaining raw edges. Make sure the fleece you want for your outside layer is on the inside. Pin and sew together with a straight stitch.  Trim your seam allowance and turn right side out.


And your finished,  It should look like this.


Little Ms. Z was kind enough to model for me today.  Isn't she cute in her new neck warmer?  She looks cozy and warm to me!



Bye Now,

  4. That is so clever! Why didn't I think of that. My grandma used to knit dickies (the fake tutle necks that have flaps that tuck into the neck of your shirt) for skiing, but they were itchy. This though...I want one for myself!

  10. Is the 14" or 26" cut side cut from the stretchiest part of the fleece? And, if it was made longer, do you think it could stretch up over the head and serve as a neck, face AND also a head warmer (similar to the head coolers they sell at Lowes Mission Endura Cools)? Thank you very much for any help.
