Luxe Fleece Neck Warmer

Lots of fun and warm too!

Luxe Fleece Embroidered Neck Warmer

You can use regular fleece or any fabric with similar stretch…

I used design M23263 from Embroidery Library

You will need three colors of thread if you use this design

You will need sticky back tear away stabilizer

You will need cut away stabilizer

regular sewing thread to finish

Due to the thickness of the luxe fleece I did not use my high tension yellow bobbin… I just used my regular black bobbin and filled it with 60 wt. bobbin thread…

Cut the fleece 12 by 22 with the most stretch going the 22 inch length… measure in from the left end 8 inches and then six inches up to find center and put a pin … this is the center of your design…

Hoop the sticky back tear away stabilizer, burp the hoop and take off the paper … fold the fleece lengthwise with right sides together and lay on the stabilizer so the pin is in the center of the hoop and use your top and bottom center hoop markings to line up the fleece and lightly press down …unfold and press the other side…

Load your design… I rotated my design just a little bit to make the rose sit in an upright position…

float the cut away under your hoop, lay the wss stabilizer on top of your fleece..stitch a basting box and stitch out your design…

when finished, remove basting stitches, cut the cut away close to stitching being careful and remove wss from top.

fold neck warmer lengthwise rst. stitch using 1/2 inch seam…

finger press seam open… reach in and without twisting, grab the other end of the seam and pull through to match the lengthwise seam ends… stitch a few inches leaving an opening to turn the neck warmer right side out and close the opening using a ladder stitch…

the lengthwise seam goes down the center of the neck warmer and the end seam is center back…

Have fun!
