Free Pattern to Make Your Own Snuggie for Less Than $12.00

Last week my daughter got one of those infamous Snuggies as a white elephant gift at a party. When she showed it to me I couldn't believe how easy it would be to make. So I made myself a pattern (more of a recipe. I first wrote the dimensions on a recipe card in case I wanted to make another one), and then made a

Snuggie. It zipped up so fast I made another, and another. I was able to buy polar fleece from Hancock fabric for $3.99/yard. It only took 2 3/4 yard of fabric, so it cost less than $12 to make. By the way, Hancock will continue to have their polar fleece on sale at that price until Christmas. I wrapped myself up in one of them and watched a movie one night. They are really quite comfy, especially made with the heavier, better quality fabric than the official Snuggie my daughter has. I even made an unofficial offical tag like the real snuggies just for fun. But instead of calling it a Snuggie, I've made a tag that reads, "This is not a Snuggie, it's a CUDDLE from Carolyn.

I would love to share my "recipe" with those of you who like to sew and or are looking for a cheap easy gift to give for Christmas. I've upgraded my pattern from a recipe card, but if you can't read this clearly, feel free to email me and I'll send you the pattern via e-mail in a pdf format. Contact me at

Have a Cuddly Christmas


  1. That is so cool Carolyn! Thank you!

    I so want to be able to sew. I *can* sew but I don't really know how, lol. I mean, I'm sure I don't do things right. And it scares me. But I have a son who really wants a Snuggie, lol, but I refuse to buy it for him. But maybe I can MAKE him one - thanks to you!

  2. Carolyn,
    What a great idea! I can't wait to see what invention you come up with every month! I could especially use good recipes. Thanks for reading my blog and directing me out to yours. You're on my favorite list now. And thanks for all your nice words.
