Whether you call it a “Snuggie” a “Slanket“, “Snuglet” or just that big fleece blanket with sleeves, they’re popular, and at this time of year – it’s no wonder! You can curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and your needlework, stay warm and keep your arms free all at the same time.
But you’d rather make your own instead of shelling out $50? Luckily, my lovely friend Karen found a great free pattern to make your own Snuglet!
Welmoed’s Sewing Room has created a PDF how-to for sewing your own fleece blanket from 3 yards of polar fleece. I’ve seen fleece on sale for as low as $5, so it’s a lot more economical to sew your own when you can find the fabric on sale
