Sorry for repeating myself

DD has requested a fleece blanket or cuddle sack that she DH can share while watching TV this winter. I haven't been able to find a pattern. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks very much.

Hi Sue!

Welmoed, the original reviewer for the Snuglet and author of the instructions, made a comment in my review of the Snuglet on how you might make a Snuglet for two...

Quote:
To make the Snuglet for two, you will need to join two widths together. One thing to consider: make two snuglets and have a row of snaps down the "joining edges" of the two. This way they can be used either separately, or snap them together for some fireside cuddling!


I hope this helps!

(And many thanks to Welmoed for this wonderful idea and the nice instructions!)

The snuggle blanket idea, with additional width in the middle, would probably be easiest.

You could also use Kwik-Sew 2727, which is for a couch-sack. (Kind of like the snuggle blanket, but with the bottom sewed up. You would basically need to make two of them, and sew them together at the side (probably skipping the sleeves on that side).

Hi AnneM
The FIRST thing I thought when I saw the cute KwikSew couchsack was, "do ya wear it with a diaper"? Can you imagine hop-hop-hopping to the bathroom in that thing??!!

Hey, stop laughing - I have one of those!!

I have a RTW "couch sack". Glamerous it is not, but functional it is.

It is actually easy to walk in (although I wouldn't try running). There is PLENTY of ease. But it is warmer than a regular robe, since the bottom is sewn together.

In the winter my sewing area is freezing, so I'll be down there in my couch sack.

You do have to strip a bit in the bathroom. I wear layers underneath it, since it is for extra warmth, so it isn't too bad.

My grandma gave all of her granddaughters one of these for Christmas one year. We walked around like penguins. You have to take the whole thing off to go to the bathroom. They are very,very warm. Almost unbearably warm! The kids think it's really funny to see mom in this contraption!

Janime,

Great minds think alike! That's Welmoed's answer to my request I've been subscribed to TCM forever but went 'no mail' last year while preparing for DD's wedding and never changed my sub. settings.

I love Welmoed's idea for the snaps. I don't have enough fleece on hand for two snuglets; I feel a trip to Fabricland brewing

Thanks for taking the time to write.

Sue
