Tuesday's Tutorial: Winter Accessory Round-up
It takes about 1/2 yard of fleece to make a scarf, hat, and mittens. We also use thrifted wool sweaters (washed and dried 3 times in hot to "felt" them), and thrifted fleece scarves and blankets. Thrifted is less expensive than by the yard most often. I have a red thrifted fleece adult cape that I bought three years ago for .99 cents. We're still cutting from it. ;)
The mitten tutorial suggests lining with knit. I've done that with 2 pair each. Other than that we just use the fleece layer. They do get wet quickly, but it's easier to make several pair of one layer. We always make the long cuff version.
