Totally wisted.

I too am a small-framed, always-cold woman. This rocks.

Looks cozy! Besides being hideous, ridiculous, over priced, tacky, and the butt of every joke: snuggies really aren't very warm. Its one layer of cheap thin fleece. Your multi-layer wrap is attractive and classy. Go you!

That "cozy winter wrap" is marvelous! Thanks for sharing your pics with us! I hate being cold and it has been soooo unusually cold here since November!  Did you use about 2 yards of each fabric? (trying to figure out how much fabric I should get for the length of one.)
Thanks!

This is SO FABULOUS!
So, I'm trying to see all the details, but I'm not quite sure...

Did you use two fabrics joined around the perimeter with basically a fur edging sewn between the two layers?  Or did you join the two fabrics and add the fur trim later? The fur trim looks like it goes equal distance in on both the inside and the outside... did you have trouble rounding the curves?

What kind of fabrics did you use? I'm guessing some kind of fleece for the inside, but the outside looks like it could almost be a jersey knit (I just can't tell with these aging eyes!)

Sorry to bother you with so many questions, but I'm just so stoked about possibly imitating it!

That's a great idea - I usually spend winter wrapped in a blanket.

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?
