Super Sleeves


  • A sheet of mylar or 1/4 yd clear vinyl
  • 1/4 yd. shiny/glitter organza or chiffon
  • Velcro
  • Wondertape
  • Fleece
  • 3M Super 77 adhesive spray
  • Super Sleeve Pattern
  • Fray-Check




Trace two sets of the pattern on the mylar or clear vinyl and on the organza or chiffon.
Cut out your pieces just inside of your marking lines to prevent lines showing on the edges of your sleeves.


Next, spray the mylar pieces with an even coat of adhesive spray (do not spray too close to the mylar!).

Carefully line up place the organza or chiffon pieces onto each mylar piece and smooth out any lumps or bubbles. Let dry. The fabric will be the top layer of the sleeves. Trim any uneven or excess edges.

Using Wondertape, place two strips of velcro (rough side) along the top side of the sleeve pieces (indicated on the pattern piece).


Carefully and VERY SLOWLY stitch the Velcro into place. Your machine will scream at you!


Use Fray-Check along all of the edges of the fabric to prevent fraying. Let dry.

Once the Velcro has been stitched down and the Fray-Check has dried, cut out fleece to cover the bottom of the sleeve to protect your skin from rubbing or scratching. Make sure the fleece is slightly longer than the mylar. We prefer ours hang off about 1/4″ to protect against the edges.

Carefully and very slowly stitch the fleece into place.



Finally, handstitch a strip of the soft side of the velcro to the inside of the shoulder rolls to attach the sleeves to.
