For some reason I always buy fleece at the fabric store--but I don't really have too many uses for it here in Las Vegas.  I love working with it though!  So here are a few things I have made for swaps with your normal fleece.


This was the first tree scarf I made(photo taken by lasandri-the recipient, who also inspired the design).  The flowers are kansashi style, and made to look like cherry blossoms with watered down paint and fuzzy type yarn.  They have pins attached to the backs so they can be moved/removed.  The leaves are layered ultrasuede and fleece.

Since then I  have made two more.

Basically the same, but a little lighter weight, darker brown fleece.  The flowers are a little differently made so they wouldn't be as heavy on the scarf. These two got some "training" from one of our trees before they got sent out.

Now THAT is a good use of fleece!  I swear to God, if I have to see one more tied, fleece blanket, or hear one more MORON say, "Gee, look, I can tie knots!  I'm so crafty!"  I'm scream.

I love 'em!

As the lucky recipient of one of the 2nd round, I can swear under oath that they are even about a hundred times better in person! Aschnebly is a genius!! It's like winter and spring rolled into one fabulous, wearable item!! I will post an action shot as soon as I can! Aschnebly has redeemed fleece in my eyes and created something wonderful!

I love these so much, and I want to maybe adapt the idea a bit.  Some questions, did you double side them or is it a single layer of fabric and did you use any interfacing?

Ahh! Gorgeous!

What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.
