Have you seen the Snuggie on tv? It's part blanket, part robe, and all fleecey goodness for $20 + $8 shipping. Crazy! Yes, it's a little silly to have another blanket so you can have your arms warm and free, but my Grandma wanted one for christmas and I just couldn't see spending that much on something I new I could make for much less. It ended up being super easy to make, took me less than an hour to make 2 of them, also the cost came in at about $9 each. 

I found a pattern at http://www.sissonfamily.com/Sewingroom/images/2006projects/thesnuglet.pdf

For Grandma:

For my Stepmom:

The back, I guess they assume you will always be sitting or laying down in the Snuggie since the back is open, otherwise your backside is still going to be cold!

Great way to work your craftiness into Christmas! My DD wants one of these too, thanks for the link.

P.S. I just bought the same blue fleece at Joann's on Friday morning - crazy there then!  Shocked

I used 3 yards for each.

You are welcome for the link. I got a good laugh from the picture on the directions, that person looks so happy to be in their snuggie and reading  Cheesy

You have answered my Christmas-present-making woes! I know somebody who is going to get one of these (hopefully in the tackiest print fleece I can find) just for mocking the Snuggie! Then I'll make one for me in something pretty and cuddly Smiley Great job on yours & thanks for the link!!

I made 20 or so of these last year for Christmas presents. They went over quite well. They are fast and easy to make. I made my 2 grandsons 9 and 10 each one and only used 2 yrds of fleece. We even got creative and made the sleeves different colors to make them easier to find.

Live well, laugh often, love much
