Wristies for holiday presents

I figured out what to give for holiday presents this year. I got a catalog from Plow & Hearth and oogled over all their stuff, knowing that I can't afford anything. I noticed that they sell "Wristies" for $14.95 & 17.95 and I thought "Gee, I can make those for less."

Seems simple enough to do and I can think of several of my goat friends that would probably appreciate a pair at chore time. So, I'm off to the fabric store to pick up some fleece.

Cute!!! They look easy to make, and with all the different fleece patterns available, it would be fun to choose to match the recipients personality.
Do yo think they're lined with fleece also, lined with a soft silky lining fabric, or just hemmed?
Looks like these might be serged around the fingers but since I don't have a serger I was thinking of using some narrow elastic.
Hey! What a great gift! And I have a pattern for making various hats, from fleece. Could make a matching set. Love this idea.
Since they are serged around the fingers, you could use a zig zag stitch. I think the elastic may become constricting on larger fingers.
