So.......since I now own a sewing machine.........I thought I'd take a crack at sewing something! While scrolling through Tip Junkie, I saw this post for fleece scarves with minimal sewing (oh yah!). Cindy and I had so much fleece left over from our Hershey Snowmen, that I knew fleece was the way to go! The only bad thing, is I didn't have very LONG pieces of fleece, so the scarves are a bit shorter than I would of liked.
Here are some shots!
And here are the models:
Kasha & Leslie
Julie & Jill
Mom and Aunt Barbara
I even made one for my cousin Carl because he LOVED this pattern
when I made him his chocolate snowmen
Here's Aunt Barbara modeling her scarf and my BAD attempt at a fleece hat!!
For the men, I made Hand Warmers, thanks to Cheryl at She Stamps. She sent me a beautiful set of heart-shaped hand warmers and after thinking about what to do for the guys, I thought square hand warmers would work, matched up with the Hershey Snowmen.
I followed THIS tutorial and here are the results:
I forgot to take a picture of how I packaged the scarves...but on both gift packages....I added a little tag that said:
"Remember......it's the 'thought' that counts" !!!
But, everyone seemed to like them and my father-in-law uses his hand warmers every day!!!
Thanks for your visit!
