Free patterns for making Snuggies and Wearable Blankets.

Reader Question time again!

We were sent this following request:
Q: Does anyone have a pattern or knows how to make a snuggie (wearable blanket)?
My 8 year old is begging for one and I was looking online for a pattern and not really having any luck!

A: Good question. You can find the free patterns for making your own Slanket and Snuggies HERE.

We hope they helped.

Alternatively there are very cheap children’s Snuggies and Slankets at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, so you should check them out too (often cheaper than buying the material).

    Here is one. Just skip the embroidery if you don’t want it. It is called a Cuddle-Up Cozy

    I can think of a really easy way to make one. Get a blanket, or two blankets (depending on the size of your kid – you’ll need the right amount of fabric).

    You don’t want this thing to drag on the ground, not for a kid at least. So start by measuring from their shoulder to the ground. For example, let’s say that’s 4 feet, or 48 inches. Also measure her armspan – fingertip to fingetip with arms outstretched. Let’s say thats 4 feet 6 inches, or 54″.

    A twin blanket would work well for this, they are usually 66×90 inches. If you fold it in half across the long side, you will have a double layer of fabric that is 66 inches wide by 45 inches tall (not quite 48, but close enough in this case. A taller kid might require two blankets; if you need to do that, then sew the two blankets together along their top edges to make a really long rectangle)

    Fold the blanket (or two blankets) with the wrong sides outwards (if there is a wrong side). Draw on it with a crayola or a fabric marker; draw a thick T-shape, like a tshirt but longer – basically, you are making a one-piece dress out of blanket fabric. The arms of the T will form the sleeves, and the long base will go around your kid’s body. Be generous with the sizing, because it’s probably nicer if it’s a bit loose.

    Seam along the lines of the T, leaving the bottom, and the ends of the sleeves open. Cut a hole in the top for her head to go through, hem it if you like, or leave it if the blanket is the kind of fabric that won’t fray. All the other sides should already be hemmed since you don’t have to cut the blanket anywhere else.

    If your kid has different measurements, just figure out how big your rectangle needs to be to fit their arms and body.

    The snuggie website is selling them for $19.99 + $7.95 S&H plus giving a second one free if you pay S&H. The cost is really pretty good for all the fabric involved but I wanted to make my own also. Here is a fairly simple project. Good Luck.
