Reversible neck warmer with fleece interfacing

Want to make a neck warmer with some fabric that is lovely but not very warm and cozy? Add a layer of fleece interfacing in between!

Last month I made THIS NECK WARMER and it’s been one of the hits of the winter. People like it and it’s so cozy I’ve even slept with it during the coldest days. ^^’

So, when my brother gave me a piece of this super cool Japanese fabric for Christmas, I thought it would be great to make another neck warmer with it. But it wasn’t as warm as the polar fabric I used in the first one. So, after some thinking I realized the solution was quite easy: I could use a scrap of patchwork fleece I had from the PATCHWORK QUILT PROJECT to make it thicker.

So, basically what I did was cutting a piece of interfacing same size as the two rectangles of fabric and basted it to one of the pieces.

The rest of the process was essentially the same as with the previous neck warmer.

And it’s also reversible.

The truth is that the result was a little bit too stiff. But after some uses the fabric has softened and it’s totally wearable now.
