the top hat is awesome!
i didnt even think of makin hockey skate covers! great idea, im gonna have to steal that idea haha

Thank you  Smiley

Just make sure you line them with an old towel because otherwise the blades will slice right through the fleece.  Also I just sewed a tunnel around the top(not sure if there is a sewing term for that) and then threaded the elastic through and then tied it at the end.  Evidently if you sew the elastic in eventually it wears out and they won't work anymore, if you just have the elastic tied in then you can tighten it once they start to wear out or even replace the elastic.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Brilliant idea, I have a huge problem with elastic wearing out in things, so I'm going to have to try this.

there is a tool that you can use to thread it through...starts with a B...ummm....well i can't remember what it is called; I just used a safety pin.  Attach the safety pin to one end of the elastic and push it through.  Bigger the safety pin the easier it will be.  Oh and don't forget to pin the other end down!  It sucks when you are almost done all that threading to find that you've pulled the other end through and now have to start all over!

Thank you!  While I can say I made them the idea to do so came from my girl, so she deserves partial credit in this endeavor.  Grin

the best thing about this post, other than your fleecy goodies, is that you look like you had a great time making these things for yourself!

I love the top hat and the figure skate covers! Thanks for the tips about the elastic and using toweling--I was wondering about the blades slicing through fabric!  They certainly are much more stylish than the plain rubber covers!

more more!!!
