Here’s today’s post:
Hello Sewing Enthusiasts! I’m Angel with Fleece Fun and today I’m going to show you have to make a Bow Infinity Wrap.
Bows are back and in vogue. You can make this cute wrap that will keep your shoulders warm and when made out of minky feels oh-so-good against the skin. This project can be completed from start to finish in under a half hour.
For this project you will need:
- ¾ yard of minky or micro-fleece (can substitute regular polar fleece or Jersey knit)(Note: if you are making this in an extra-large size you may need more fabric),
- jersey ball point needle,
- rotary cutter, mat,
- measuring tape,
- sewing machine
Step 1: Take a quick rough measurement.
Taking the large piece of fabric (the one that goes around your shoulders) – fold it in over on itself right sides together (so it’s the same length, just half the width) and sew, using a .5 seam allowance all the way down the fabric length. This will make a large tube turn right side out ( so all the soft goodness in on the outside).
Step 3: Gather part of each end.
Step 5: Wrapping it up
Taking the 5×8 piece of fabric turn under the edges .5 inches and using a zig zag stich sew the ends down. Then take the piece and with right sides together wrap it around the wrap – pin the ends together and sew using a .5 seam allowance, taking care to keep all the other fabric out of the way. Turn right side out, slide so that if covers the seam where the wrap ws join and hand stich a few stiches in the back to make the loop stay in place. Finished! You now have a cute wrap, that feels as good as it looks!
