Hat Attack! hats we made in Sewing Club. I find mittens too complicated for first-time sewers, and wristies have proven to be not only functional, but also very very stylish!
So, here goes a quick tutorial to get you whipping up your own wristwarmers.
Materials Needed: Fleece, needle and thread, chalk, scissors, any embellishments
Small - 7-1/2 x 6 (this fit kindergarten and small 1st graders)
Medium - 8x7 (this fit larger 1st grade-3rd grade)
Large - 8-1/2 x 7-1/2 (this fit 4th and up, including myself)
For the thumb hole, measure 1-1/2 inch from the top of the wristwarmer, and make a mark. Then, measure down 1-1/2 inch more. Make another mark. The thumb hole is between the 2 marks. Hopefully the pictures above will give you a better idea of what I mean here.
Yes, these can also be made super fast using old sweaters - see how I did that here.
Ed note: I received a comment from a company that asked me to change the original name of the project because it was copyrighted. They told me that it was not "cool" of me to use it and you know me, I don't want to be uncool.
