Step 2: Cutting out pattern

3. Cut along marked line. Place this cut piece along the folded edge and cut a second piece out. You should have 2 dome shaped pieces.

4. Now, fold the remainder of your fabric in half. Place one of your dome-shaped pieces along the folded edge. Take your measuring tape and draw a line 5 inches above the top of your dome-shaped piece. (6 inches if you are making this for an adult sized handlebar).

5. Draw a line perpendicular to make a rectangle, leaving 1/4 inch of space on either side of your dome-shaped piece. Cut out. Place this cut out piece along the folded edge of the fleece and use this outline to cut a second rectangular piece.

You should now have 2 rectangular pieces, and 2 dome-shaped pieces... all folded in half.
<p>maybe you should call them Finger warmers instead? cuz I see an exposed hand</p>
On Motorbikes they are called heated grips they have some elements in the rubber. But the control box usually melts against the exhaust. Good idea though.
maybe having brakes on the childrens bikes might be make more sence
Most kids bikes have foot brakes.
do your thumbs get cold?
I guess a little. But they are wrapped behind the handlebar and more protected from the wind. It's those little fingers that get numb knuckles if they're not wrapped up :-)
that makes sense. nice job by the way. good luck in the sew warm contest.
Thank you!
What a great idea!
Amazing! I love this idea--thanks for sharing! :)
