*individual results may vary
Step 1: Materials
These particular snuggies used 2 yds (1.8m) of 60" (152cm) wide fleece each. Any width of fleece will work - it just affects how much the finished snuggie will wrap around the child.
You'll also need a measuring device, some chalk or disappearing ink pen, a pair of scissors and some thread.
I decided to use contrasting thread and the Singer serger to flatlock the seams together (more on that in Step 4!). You could use matching thread and a sewing machine, or sew by hand. The choice is yours!
Step 2: Measure and Cut
Cut along this line, then fold the sleeve portion in half, and cut along fold.
Step 3: Cut Armholes
Measure down from the top edge of your fabric about 9" (23cm) and mark with your chalk or disappearing ink.
Measure in from the fold about 9" (23cm) and mark again.
These two marks indicate the edges of your oval template . I included the same template as I did for the adult snuggie, which you'll want to scale down to a more appropriate size (80% in this case).
Pin the two layers of fleece together. Trace and cut out the armholes.
