Instructions

  1. 1

    Lay the fleece out flat so the 1 1/2-yard edges form the top and bottom of the rectangle shape, and trim off the selvedge edges or any uneven edges.

  2. 2

    Find the centre of the bottom edge, and mark this. Measure up 24 inches from the bottom edge and draw a straight line from the bottom edge to this point.

  3. 3

    Measure 2 inches on either side of the line at the bottom edge, then draw straight lines from these measurements to the 24-inch mark, curving the top to make an inverted U shape.

  4. 4

    Cut out the inverted U shape, and then sew a 1/4-inch hem around this. This will be the neck area.

  5. 5

    Sew a 1/2-inch hem around the rest of the piece, and add any desired embellishments.
