Cozy Shoulders

by Nancy Zieman

Drape this "Cozy Shoulders" fleece wrap around your shoulders to eliminate that fresh air chill. This wrap provides lightweight warmth for any season. It's easy to make and cozy to wear!

Finished Cozy Shoulders Drape is approximately 34" x 52"

Supplies

• 1 yard of high loft fleece
• One spool all-purpose thread to match fleece

Handy Notions

• Basic sewing supplies
• Rotary cutter, mat and ruler

Instructions

  1. Cut fleece.
  • Cut selvage edges off the lengthwise fleece edges.

Note from Nancy
Selvage edges are usually trimmed from fleece as they are uneven and sometimes unattractive.

  • Fold fleece in half with the trimmed edges together.
  • Make a 22" cut along the fold edge. This will be the neck edge.

  1. Hem neck edge.
  • Position fleece with the wrong side facing you.

Note from Nancy
To find the wrong side of the fleece, gently tug fleece on the crosswise edge. It will curl to the wrong side.

  • At the lower edge of slit fold under approximately 1".
  • Gently taper fold to practically nothing at the point on both sides of the slit.

  • Topstitch in place with a long straight stitch.

  1. Hem lower edges.
  • Finger press a 1" hem on the back and front edges of wrap.

  • Topstitch in place with a long straight stitch.

  1. Hem side edges (sleeves).
  • Finger press a 3 - 4" hem on the side edges which will be the sleeves of the wrap.

  • Topstitch in place with a long straight stitch.

A quick project for warm Cozy Shoulders!
