I mentioned previously that I had a lot of fleece. I was a sucker for sale fleece.
I used my Olfa to scallop the larger fleece pieces with pretty prints. And now the kids use them as lightweight blankies.
A few fleece pieces were smaller, less than 2 yards but more than a yard. I used those to make "throws". Here are 2 I made for the couch in the trailer. The couch is "pleather". It feels cold when it's cold out. These throws are perfect.
It sat prized in my stash a looong time. I couldn't bear to donate it.
I tacked the fleece to (a cotton piece of fabric for the back) with beads. I used brown and green beads on the fleece. Not sure if you can "see" them. Then when the throw is washed the front/back doesn't separate, or bubble.
I bought the owl fabric recently for a craft I'll show another time. I had to buy it in a 3 yard piece. I only needed 1/2 a yard for the craft project, but I loved the design. It reminds me of our Lodge in the north woods. So it was a perfect.
Why do I think I'd wear those things? (jackets?) Years ago I once made a quilted jacket that was loved by everyone but me! I should have given it away, but no it hung in my closet for years waiting to be worn. :o( And then I donated it.
Of course I didn't "need" these. But we are enjoying them!
(((HUGS))) and prayers and Happy Creating!
