Step 3: Sewing on velcro

Now it's time to begin sewing

6. Take your rectangular piece (which should still be folded in half), and sew along the length of the longer edge. Repeat on the other side. Turn the piece right side out.

7. Take one piece of velcro and sew it (or stick it) close to the folded edge of your rectangle.

8. Flip the piece over and sew (or stick) the other piece of velcro 4 1/2 inches from the folded end of the rectangle. (5 1/2 inches if you are making this for an adult handlebar)
<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! :)
