My favorite season of the year is Fall. The magazines are starting to show nice Autumn features, I saw mums for sale at one of the garden centers, it was finally under 90+* outside this week, and of course today is the first big day for college football (yay!)!
I made this for an LSU fan…it’s a challah cover that’s perfect for this season!
Two colors of fleece, in team colors – about 1/2 yard each
Fabric tack (fabric glue)
An existing challah cover (as a guide)
I gathered the fabric and cut them to size. I put an existing challah cover over the top, measured an extra 4″ around each side (this makes room for the fringe), and cut the fleece to those dimensions:
Next, I placed the gold fleece behind the purple. I took fabric tack and ran a bead of glue around and underneath all the edges of the letters. That needs to dry overnight.
To make the fringe, I took my scissors and cut slits through both pieces of the fabric together, about one inch wide and four inches up, on the two long sides of the cover, then knotted the gold and purple strips together:
All done! Geaux Tigers!
I bet Av will want one now for his alma mater, UVA. Or Bama. Maybe I’ll make one for Troy! …or the Saints! This could go on forever! hahaha!
When it gets to be cooler, I’ll probably make a big fleece blanket (like the one I did last year) in team colors for us to go to games with.
