I donít know what it is about me, but I seem to be totally incapable of retaining body heat during the winter months. It doesnít matter if Iím in my nice warm heated house, Iím always running around in a blanket. That blanket is starting to get old and frayed and frankly isnít the classiest thing to be running around the house in. The big blanket also gets in the way of doing things and Iím far too much off a wuss to take it off to do anything dexterous, lest I let in the cold air. It is how you say, not the most practical or stylish of solutions.

I don't do slankets either. Or snuggies.

What I DID do was stitch myself a new cozy wrap!



The outside is soft knit, the inside is cozy fleece, and I trimmed it with some furry fabric I found at the store.



It's basically a blanket shape with a line cut up the middle, so you can drape it around your neck and it doesn't get in the way. It's perfect for wandering around the house in, and it's much MUCH easier to use my arms. Yay!

*addition* For those of you looking for a pattern, it's so simple you really don't need one. This is what it looks like when it's flat.



It's just a big blanket, with rounded corners and a cut up the middle. You can make it as long or short as you like!

Speaking as one who freezes all the time as well..... Fantastic idea!  Grin

If it weren't for the fact that my feet are usually what's freezing I'd make one this afternoon.   Cheesy

OMG, I've been wanting something warm to bring to movie theaters or to work, this is way cuter than what I'd been imagining!!!!  I'd even go as far as to call it sexy!   Smiley

Thanks for sharing, I hope I can duplicate something half as cute!

Oh my this is so vintage fabulous, I love it! It reminds me of the "old lady" wraps I see in department stores, that grandmas riding the train wear, but without looking "old lady-ish" at all! I always wanted one but would never be seen in it, but this is so elegantly cute! I think I may have to whip one up, I'm thinking a well placed button could help keep things in place as well...Love it!
