Kitchen Crafts – 10 Minute Easy Fleece Arm Warmers

Quick and simple for this one!  I get very cold hands and feet.  Now, I would love to simply wear 37 layers at all times but I need my hands!  There’s nothing worse than being wrapped up all toasty warm only to find a gap around your wrists, letting in that arctic chill!  So, a simple solution!  Arm Warmers!  These are pretty freestyle, you draft the pattern off your own arm so they are sure to fit!

Fleece Arm Warmers

Very simply, you get your chosen fleece.  You place your arm on it and trace round it.  Add ~1″ to this outline.  (If you have larger arms then you may wish to add more.  You can measure the circumference of your arm, halve it and as long as the pattern is that width you should be fine!) Decide where you want the arm warmer to end on your fingers/hand/arm and thumb and draw a line across.  Cut out 4 of this shape.

Pair the fleece shapes up, pin them if you like, then sew 1/4″ away from the edge along each side and the V between the thumb and fingers.  Leave the ends open!  Trim any loose threads and the edge of the seams to tidy up, turn them right side out et voila!  Arm Warmers!

These honestly did take me 10 minutes from start to finish and that was inventing it as I went along.  They’re super quick to throw together and so very useful in the cold weather!
