The more adventurous of you out there will probably be thinking that it should be pretty easy to make your own Slanket or Snuggie, after all it’s just a large sheet of fabric with holes in strategic places. Well you’d be right (not that we’ve actually tired ourselves), and making your own Slanket or Snuggie is going to be way cheaper than buying one.
Making your own Slanket or Snuggie can be as cheap or as expensive as you’d like it to be – the cost comes down to what material you use, and how much you actually pay for the material.

Anyway, regardless of what material that you finally use, we’ve trawled the internet to bring you all the best patterns currently available for making your own Slanket or Snuggie.
