The lower, measuring 75 centimeters by 40 centimeters, is a rectangle with rounded edges. Allowances are left for 2 centimeters. The upper has a size of 65 centimeters by 40 centimeters. All corners of the part are rounded and also allowances of 2 centimeters are left. Then the cloth is cut from the calculation of 2 parts of the insulation for 1 main fleece. All layers of parts are added together.


  1. The inner layer of fleece and the heater are stitched first so that the stitches are in the middle.
  2. Lightning is sewn into the outer part of the product from both sides.
  3. The outer part of the overall is stitched at the edge.
