I saw this wrap for sale online for $42.50 and I knew it would be simple to make. am you need are 2 yards of a stretchy material like jersey knit and a pair of scissors. A measuring tape is also helpful but not necessary.

Step 1: How Simple Is This?

You will need:
About two yards of stretchy fabric like a jersey knit.  This fabric will probably come in widths of 54: or 62 inches, either is fine
Something to measure with is also helpful.
<p>I love this instructable thank you so much</p>
Can you post photo of other ways to wear this?
<p>If you go to the link I posted in the first step it has a bunch of tutorials for different ways to wear it :)</p>
Thanks, I appreciate it.
It looks so elegant!
looks nice and simple. how do you know if it's big enough? and how does it look on ppl that don't have model's body?
Well, I don't have a model's body and I think it looks alright on me! There are to many ways to wear it, I think it would be flattering on pretty much any body type. I think that 2 yards of fabric is an amount that will work for a lot of sizes. If you're worried, you could add another half a yard, but if the fabric you are using is as stretchy as the fabric I was using, that might even be too much!
There are several Pinterest and probably other blog posts on HOW exactly to wear this---not sure you put your head thru--altho I dunno why not!!!---but I think the slits are more for arm holes so it doesn't slide off your shoulders---the prob I always have with things! <br> <br>Lighter weight for bathing suit cover ups; could always use it as a shelter at the beach or camping; wrap around your waist; could make one in terry and use for a beach towel and shower towel--endless!
Oh yeah, making them out of different materials would be really interesting. A terry bathing suit cover would be great!
And the knit fabric won't run or fray? What about washing? Can you follow the instructions for the fabric or do you have to hand wash to care for the un-hemmed edges? This actually looks perfect for work year-round since we can never tell from one day to the next if we're going to freeze or roast.
If you use a jersey fabric like the material that t-shirts are made out of the edges won't fray, they will just curl a bit! You can just follow the instructions for the fabric. I love wearing this in Massachusetts because the weather changes so often!
Would Ghandi have worn one of these ???
I wish I could see you put that thing on. I think I'm confused. But it's stunning and looks easy enough to make, but not so sure about easy to put on. :) Thank you for posting this.
If you look at the link in the first step, there are a bunch of tutorials for different ways to wear it. The best part is, there's really no right way to wear it!
OMG~!~ IT'S A THNEED!!~!~! the lorax is gonna be pissed!!
It appears as if she has put her head through one of the slits, wrapped it around and then put her head through the other slit. You can also use the slits to put your arms through. I have seen these on other websites.
hmm, interesting. If you did sew, you could embellish it a lot.
Looks nice, I'll give it a try! <br>Thanks for posting this :)
How super simple! Thanks!
its nice.. but is it fit for men? hahhah
I wear woolen ones during really cold winters. Men in northern India wear it too
Sure, why not? I'm sure there are some guys who could pull it off very well!
