Warm Covers

Wonderful ideas for warm blankets, snuggles, coats, cloaks, and robes!

With all the heavy snow and ice we’ve had the last few winters, these warm covers will be very useful.

Since most of them are made with fleece fabric, they are easy to cut and sew, and the edges do not need to be finished because they don’t fray.

If you wish to make these gifts more interesting, you can add appliques or a colorful blanket stitch around the edges.

And to make them really warm, you can use 2 layers of fleece. Keep a quillow in your car for emergencies.

Lots more ideas for gifts to keep warm here.

Warm Covers to Wear

Fleece Cloak

Using Simplicity pattern number 9887, I have made several fleece cloaks. Buy the fleece when it is on sale – or after Christmas when the prices are really reduced.

All the sewing required are the two side seams, and attaching the hood. Using fleece, there are no edges to be finished and no hem needed. And they are nice and warm!

Easy Cloak

To make an easy cloak cut a rectangle from fleece, sew a casing across the neck edge and feed a cord through the casing. To keep the cord from slipping out, tie knots in the ends or sew across the cord in the center back.

Fur and Suede Winter Cloak

Stitch a fur and suede winter cloak to wear for fun and warmth.

Fitted Cloak

An easy pattern for a fitted cloak, this requires sewing a few straight seams.

Fleece Cape

Easy no-sew fleece cape to make for all the ladies and young ladies on your gift list.

Warm Covers – Cozy Robes

Tee Shirt Pattern into a Robe

Warm Covers – Ponchos

No Sew Fleece Poncho

This no sew fleece poncho is very quick to make. Just cut an opening in the middle of a square. It takes a little longer if you decide to cut fringe around it.

Reversible Poncho

Here’s a great idea – 2 ponchos in one. Stitch 2 pieces of flannel or fleece fabric together to make a reversible poncho.This poncho should be twice as warm!
