Small projects

I am awaiting an order of 2 batches of Polartec for capes
next week, so I don't want to get started on a big project,
such as the nice cashmere blend wool coat I am going to make
for myself (black with red-and-black paisley lining).
So this afternoon I made 'slip covers' for a neck-roll (just
a rolled up hand towel) and my heating pad. I keep them in
the living room to use with my burgundy recliners, and I've
been wanting for a while to make covers of something to "go
with" the LR decor. I had just enough burgundy faux suede
left over from another project, perfect color. I bought a
9" and 14" zipper so I can remove the covers for laundering,
and now I can leave my supplies in the LR and it doesn't
have that "an arthritic invalid lives here" look. ;-)

I like your idea of making small projects. I enjoy doing this because I always feel right proud of myself for adding matching "goodies" to the house! Barbara in SC

What a wonderful idea of using a hand towel for a neck-roll. Thans for the idea.

You're welcome. They're washable, just the right size. I fold in half lengthwise, edges *almost* meeting in the center (that leaves slightly less thickness right in the center for my neck), then roll and secure the ends with rubber bands), and Costco sells them cheap, by the dozen. ;-)
I suppose they could even be dampened and warmed in the microwave. Or frozen when one wants cold. Hmmm, off to do a little experimenting...
