Wrap Her In Love!

Okay guys, this post is for you!  I am posting my most popular post of all time.  I believe this project is perfect as a Valentine's Day project for men.  It is absolutely no sew!!!  Not one stitch.

If you follow my instructions, and my photo tutorial, you can make this beautiful wrap for your lady.  Won't she be wowed?  Won't she be impressed?  Won't she feel wrapped in your love each time she wears it?

You will need a yard and a half of fleece.  that is the only fabric you will need.  the other items you will need are one straight pin and a good pair of scissors, fabric scissors that are really sharp.  

Now your fleece will have some edges on it that have some tiny pin holes in them from the factory.  These edges will be obvious and kind of smooshed down.  

They will be about a half inch wide.  You will need to trim those off and be careful to cut them straight.  

After that, fold the fabric in half lengthwise.  Place a straight pin 27 inches up from one of the short ends.  Cut along the crease up to the straight pin.   

Once that cut is made, you can make your fringe.  One the short ends, cut 2 1/2 to 3 inch long cuts that are about 1/4 wide along the entire length of both ends.

Be sure to cut through both layers of fabric and to keep your cuts even. 

That's it!!!!  You are done!!!  It will take you about an hour, maybe and hour and a half for a newbie with no sewing experience.   

Now this, gentleman, will knock her socks off for sure!  Let me know if you make it (even if it's for yourself) ladies or gentlemen and how you, or the recipient, like it.
