It’s getting to be that time of year again, friends! Cold weather time! And while I must admit that I love the cooler months of the year, I’m not a big fan of freezing fingers, so hand warmers are a must in our house. But why should they be boring? Never! Here are a few of our favorite DIY hand warmer projects. Psst, they make great holiday gifts! So check them out and get crafting!

No-Sew Bat Cape

Halloween, Holidays & Seasons 1 Comment

By Sewing Contributor Courteney from the blog Crafting with Court.

No- Sew Bat Cape for Halloween

As a child who lived in the North and the South, I trick or treated in snow and in a heat wave.  However, Halloween costumes seem to be mainly designed for warm temperatures and don’t really have room to jam a snowsuit under.  This bat cape is a great compromise.  If you live in a colder climate, put as many warm layers on as you need, just make sure the top layer is black.  If it’s going to be a warm Halloween, a black T-shirt and black leggings are all you need to make this costume work.  This is also great work appropriate costume if your office dresses up for Halloween.  Save your scraps from this project, you’ll use them to finish this costume later this month!
