STAYING WARM

One kind word can warm three winter months. ~Japanese Proverb

My brothers.  One a postman who served in the Army (thus the camouflage pattern). The other, a sheriff, so I sewed a 7-point star on his cowl but it ended looking like the Star of David. Oh well. Perfect winter gifts, especially with the cold weather lately, and it's already summer! And these 2 are always out and about on the streets.  
I made one for one of my kids' coaches and one for the pool's lifeguard who are always keeping an eye on my son.  At first, they weren't sure how to wear it so they got creative.  Funny.
They later figured it out.
I was in a cowl-making mood so I made one for all of their coaches.
I used fleece material, cut out the basic shape of a manta ray (the team's icon) and sewed them in.
For the lifeguard, I used the Red Cross pattern.  How easy was that!
I also made other ones with rosettes.  Just cut out circles of varying sizes and sew them atop each other.
 Add a button, and voila!
I've tried knit jerseys (old t-shirts) and they work just as well. 
So simple and so easy.  You can apply these little rosettes on any projects.  Go make one.  It's still cold outside.  From where I live anyway.
