Good morning, I think we're in for a hot one today. I have several small jobs lined up to be done, hedge triming, sewing some velcro fastenings on pockets, I like a pocket which will not fall open and lose it's contents, and I might go a bike ride later, that's if it doesn't get too hot.
Several people suggested making a neck warmer from the childs hoodie, so here it is. It's a lovely snug fleecy fabric so will keep my neck warm a treat. If my neck is cold the rest of me is cold. I can wear this inside and out, with the matching hand/wrist warmers. I usually wear a scarf all winter, but it gets a bit annoying when they stretch and you have to wrap it around two or three times. Then it gapes apart at the back exposing the neck, I am continually having to adjust it. This warmer will hopefully stay in place.
I took out the zip and closed up the seams. Over stitching using the same colour cotton does not show on this fabric. Then I cut the top part off just below the arm holes, and made a hem along the top. I left the pockets intact.
Wrap around the neck.
One press stud to fasten it, easier than making a button hole. Velcro could be used.
Easypeasy, neat eh ;o) Have a nice Sunday.
Oh, PS before I forget, we have rehomed two of Heidi's kittens. The two tortie girls have gone to a lovely home where they have one other 13 year old cat. At first they took just one kitten to see how it got on with the oldie. Everything was fine so they came back for her sister. They tell us that the two kittens were thrilled to see each other again, even though they were only apart for a couple of days. A lovely ending for those two girls. We are hopefull that someone will come along for the boys soon, it's worth waiting for the right people.
