I love working with fleece so I put together these three things out of fleece that are really easy to make and can be given as gifts. I start with the easiest thing to make which ANYONE can make – a scarf.
1. Pretty Chevron Fleece Scarf
Buy the fleece, take it home and cut the selvedge off both ends. If you want to cut fringe on each end, that’s okay, too. It won’t take long.
Here is a link to Joann’s fleece and a coupon, too. (no, I’m not getting anything for this recommendation). Joann’s has such a great selection of fleece.
I made a cream colored one for my Mom and she uses it around the house, too.
2. EASY FLEECE WRAP (OR CAPE)
I asked my granddaughter to model for me and so she had to twirl around the front yard…
You will notice that the wrap I made is rounded and the one Crafty and Cooking Momma made is pointed. Once I finished the wrap I noticed that it looked like a poncho and I wanted a more rounded look so I just rounded off the points. Now it looks more like a cape but I’m happy with it and my granddaughter loves it.
I sewed a button on. This is totally doable for anyone. That is the ONLY sewing I did and it looks great, doesn't it? Super nice. Thanks to Crafty and Cooking Momma for the instructions on how to make it!!
3. Nice, Warm Fleece Socklets
One day I was at a tag sale and I found a pair of fleece sockets in with a bunch of clothes and I thought, ‘hmm.. I can make this’. I brought them home and took them apart and made a pattern from them. Then I went shopping for fleece. :) That’s another story… I own lots of fleece now.
I found a pattern online, HERE. It looks like the exact pattern I made from the socklets I bought at the tag sale. Amazing.
One word of caution about making these feet fleecies. They are ADDICTING to make. I just kept making them. And people LOVE getting them as a gift, too.
I even made a few pairs for my year old grandson. I shrunk the pattern WAY down first though. :)
I hope everyone enjoyed this post on easy fleece gifts to make. I loved making each and every one of them!
Tomorrow is a continuation of Eleven Gifts-a-Giving ...
Best wishes, all, for a happy, blessed Christmas Season.
