BikeArlington, WalkArlington, and Arlington Public Library invite you to join Balaclavas & Baklava, our signature Winter Accessory Workshop. Participants will learn how to make their very own winter walk or bike accessory, from a warm ear cover to a full-head balaclava. These make a great gift, donation, and are of course perfect for your own winter outdoor activities. Register for this event.
- Step-by-step instructions to make a balaclava and ear cover/neck gaiter
- Downloadable templates
- Live tutorial
Materials to have on hand:
- 24”x16” piece of fleece (or other stretchy, cozy wicking fabric – not cotton) in the pattern of your choice. Note: one yard of standard-width (60 inches) fleece yields about 6 balaclavas or 10-15 ear covers/neck gaiters
- Sewing machine OR needle and a few feet of thread
- Straight pins or safety pins
- Marker or pen
All skill levels are welcome. All of these patterns can be made if you know how to do a simple stitch, although the ear cover and neck gaiters are simplest. The event is free, but RSVPs are requested.
Note: Don’t let materials be a barrier! If you need assistance obtaining the materials necessary for this event, please contact email@example.com or respond as such during event registration. We will have limited supplies available through Arlington Public Library’s Take and Make craft pickup.
