15 minute wrap

Pinterest led me to http://theseams.blogspot.com where i found the how-tos to make a super simple wrap. It took me all of 15 minutes to cut out 1 yard of fabric (basically a rectangle), measure and cut slits for armholes… and it was done!

If you’re using a fabric that doesn’t fray, you can end here. Mine doesn’t fray but i’m thinking of adding lace and possible snaps at the edges (Like Bina Brianca’s multi-way wrap) so it looks finished.

Here’s what i did…

Image1. Measure out 1 yard of fabric lengthwise, which worked out to be 36″, the full length of my ruler.

2. TheSeams used six inches down and six inches over from the folded side to make the cut but i decided to go with a centered slit. I made an 8″ cut and then decided i needed more room for my arms so i took out a rectangle.

Image3. It’s done, for now. I need to get back to my ‘real’ work so finishing the edges will be a happy task for another day. Here are some other views and methods of draping.

ImageIsn’t this pretty? You can use the fabric at the top to make a hood of sorts and hold it in place with a pin/brooch. If you don’t like so much fabric in front, reduce the width of your fabrc. 🙂
