I found this online at Supermarket HQ and the price was kind of ridiculous for essentially 2 long strips of fabric and 3 snaps. I'm not sure if the fabric had gold in it or what, but seriously ...

Anywho, my boyfriend fell in LOVE with this and was going to buy it for his mom for Christmas. But I talked him into letting me take a stab at it. We bought some vintage wool and I plucked a pretty lining fabric from my ginormous stash. I got out my hammer and added some snaps.

And 45 minutes later ...










Also, sorry for the dorky outfit underneath. I'm planning on making another one for myself and taking GOOD photos with a cute outfit (and makeup with my hair did).

Thanks for looking!

The link to the pintrest is a little broken (extra http or something) but that is cooler than the original! I think I might make a stab at one for my hubby! (he's impossible to shop for!

Thanks! It was really easy. I think mine is less than 60" long, but not by much. Also, the widest part when I cut it was 13" and I used 1/4" seams.

Oooh I want one. Thanks for the measurements, I'm thinking a get around for the snaps would be velcro with fancy buttons for decoration?

That could work, but the problem is that the velcro won't hold as well or look as nice. The idea with this is that you don't have to snap all the snaps or snap them into the correct snaps either. The unused snaps become design elements, but I don't know about velcro.

You could just do buttons and button holes. Or toggles and elastic? That would be a little nicer than velcro.

Also don't be afraid of snaps. YOU GET TO USE A HAMMER. Smiley

I love this - what a great gift. This would be a good way to use up extra wintery fabric, too, the wrapping would hide any seams in the middle.

I'm frightened by the devil, and I'm drawn to those ones who ain't afraid.
