I know, I know, it's Tuesday, but I did a couple of really simple pieces that I thought I would share. What am I talking about?!! Everything on FFPF is simple , but these are extra simple. I'll share one today and the other on Thursday.
The Snuggle Wrap
As you can see, the piece wraps around the back and around the waist. In order for this to work, you must put a twist in the rectangle as you are sewing the ends together.
but you would no longer be able to wear it as a scarf. My husband laughed when he took this picture as I have something very warm around my neck and there is a palm tree in the background.
My rectangle was 20" wide before I folded it in half and sewed it together. As for the length measurement, you will need to measure around your body just as the piece will go around you. This is a piece that must be made from a stretch knit fabric. Before you sew the ends together, wrap the piece around your body and make adjustments in the length. I really like this as an addition to my winter wardrobe. I'm usually cold, so having a piece that I can wear around my neck when I'm outside and then being able to wear it around my body inside sounds like a win, win situation to me.
I made mine from a remnant of fabric that was just about 1 yard long, so this is a nice way to use a smaller piece of fabric and I think it would be a very nice and very simple to make gift as well.
Good luck if you decide to give it a try!
