I bought a bunch of fleece material today (they have these awesome sales here every month where you can buy fabric by the pound cheap!), with the intention of making hats, scarves, and mittens for the homeless people for Christmas....anyway, my question is, can any of you think up anything else I could make that would be helpful for them????? I'd really love any suggestions! I found some patterns online that are really simple, and can't wait to get started! Got the fleece in the washer right now! :D I thought about blankets, but, that would take a lot of fabric so I wouldn't be able to make as much stuff as I'd like. It's just weighing really heavy on my heart right now to make as much stuff to help them as I can.

How's about

body warmers. They are a bit like a jacket with no arms. They could wear them under their coats and give them extra warmth.

Great Project Mouse!

I thought of vests too and also foot warmers ... they're like socks but not fitted, they look more like narrow sacks with a slightly rounded bottom -- very easy to whip up. I found some at the dollar store and really help me with my hardwood floors.

Your is a project well worth it :)

tubes

sew long slightly triangular tubes, one end is smaller than the other. kinda like a turtle neck without the body of the shirt, very warm to pull over your head and stretchable for your head, bbetter than a hat, keep the wind from blowing down your neck.

Thanks,
Elsie ./.
