Double layer fleece jacket-curiosity satisfied
As I cut out each piece from a double layer of fleece I then zig-zagged all around the piece to keep them even . I think that helped to make them behave themselves and not try to walk all over the place with me.
I tried it own & of course it swallowed me up-but then I rolled the sleeves up to my size -which would be smaller than a man's size & you talk about WARM! Where was this jacket when we had that blue-blazing cold last month - I sure could have used it! LOL
I am pleased to satisfy my curiosity & can state that it is REALLY warm & soft. Both of those work great with my fibromyalgia which likes to complain about everything that touches me. But, I shut him up this time! LOL If that young man that we got it off of has anymore to part with I might make some for all of the family and for him too. I am a happy camper when I can make somebody happy - as DH asked Emmett if the young man liked the blankets I sewed for him & the answer was yes- that he did not expect to get that many of them back -since nobody else had returned anything to him. LOL Let's just say I made him enough to make sure he is warn in the winter time. LOL
I did not have hardly Any scraps left over - I am going to check them out & see if there is enough to make a doggie coat,maybe? WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLL I can't stand to throw out scraps if there is a use for them. Plus, I can shred them with my scissors & add them to the bag of shredded knits that I intend to put in another doggie pillow, as I noticed somebody was shy one last night- who knows they probably had a 'doggie- pillow -fight'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol
