34 Fast and Easy Fleece Gifts to Make

Last year I made some fast and easy fleece items 
to make for Christmas gifts. This year I looked around to see what else I could make. Here are some fun and functional things that are quick to put together and fun also.

If you don't get them done by Christmas, so what? The winter is just beginning and January is pretty cold here in Connecticut.


First of all, let me say I LOVE working with fleece.You don't have to worry about raveling because fleece doesn't ravel. It's a nice weight also to sew with on the sewing machine or even by hand. It's a forgiving fabric so you can make mistakes and they don't show as much as a mistake on a thinner fabric.

There are scads and scads of different patterns and colors of fleece. Fun!

Here are lots and lots of fun fleece projects that make great gifts also.


girl in red cape that was homemade

Here is my granddaughter
modeling the cape I made her.

Mommy Savers did a tutorial
on how to make a poncho. Same
thing. Actually, that's how I started
mine but ended up rounding
the corners off so it's more
like a cape.
This is so EASY and if
you wait for a sale at Joann's
it's very cost effective.

No sew cape from Ruffles and Stuff.


How about these cute kitty heating pads

Scotty Dog Heating Pads - lots of fun, a little work.

Slipper Socks

In the same post I showed my socklet slippers. I've made lots and lots of these because they are so EASY to make. I know you don't believe me, but if you can use a sewing machine marginally, you can make dozens of these. I made everyone a pair one Christmas.

hand sewn Christmas fleece socklets

I found a tutorial for these on the web at Thrifty Fun and it is exactly how I make them. 


I made this pretty fleece scarf just 
by buying the fleece at Joann's, about 
1/4 yard or 1/3 yard. Then just 
trimming it evenly. 

You can make dozens of these in
no time at all... wait for a 50 or even 60 % sale at Joann's and they will be having some great sales, especially black Friday. :)
