They are just the thing to keep you warm on a cold winter day.
Pick your favorite colors, I just happen to have a pink and white one.
I made these in pink and white and blue and white last fall to sell at a craft show. The blue and white sold because they are the colors of our local Ripley Viking High School. The kids usually snatch these right up!
They are super easy to make.
Buy the thick fleece wherever they sell material. Our local Wal Mart still sells material. You can get it in a variety of colors and patterns. You can even buy it in camo. I always use 2 different colors, it makes it really pretty. If I'm not mistaken fleece usually comes in 60" width, so you could make 2 boas from a yard of material.
Cut 3 strips - each 6 inches wide. You can cut it any length you want, I think mine are around 60" long. For young children make them shorter. Layer the strips one on top of the other and sew down the middle.
Here is a picture showing the 3 different layers.
My old Teddy even looks good wearing one!
They are beautiful and cozy. And did I mention they are very easy to make.
So choose your school colors or choose your favorite colors. Make one for you and a friend. Your grandchildren and children would love one.
Hoped you liked this easy and fun project.
