I’m in the midst of another holiday sewing frenzy. Last year I made snow pants (for the kids and myself), fleece pullovers, crocheted beanies and gloves and knitted scarves (for the whole family!). Unfortunately, some pieces went missing, and the rest don’t quite fit anymore because the kids have grown! So this year I’m looking for quick and simple projects, that will not break my heart when they go missing in the snow.
The first thing I had to make was simple fleece jackets to act as linings inside their new ski jackets. I bought ski jacket+snow pants sets from Rakuten this year. At less than 4000yen for one set it didn’t make sense for me to make the snow pants myself. Then I ordered some fleece from fabric.com at US$4.98/yard. Fleece lining jackets are available here at outdoor sports shops, but they are waaaay overpriced. I drew my own patterns for the jackets and I’m in the middle of taking photos of the steps, hopefully there will be a sew-along soon. 🙂
Then my hubby reminded me this morning that he wanted to buy a new beanie, I offered to sew one for him but he politely declined. I then decided to look for a fleece beanie pattern for my little girls and this is what I found!
