DIY Convertible Shawl/Shrug

Supplies: one yard of fabric with stretch and drape. 
closure


Great for a last minute gift, this shrug can be worn several different ways and takes a few minutes to make. Get some fabric and make it for the whole family. 


Read more for the DIY tutorial:





Cut a rectangle of fabric measuring 36 inches wide and 30 inches long. 

I hand dyed mine, before it was white jersey. I serged the edges as well. If you use a jersey you can easily leave the edges unfinished. Just tug to get a roll. 


Cut the sleeve hole using a collar in the middle on both sides.


Fold length wise in half right sides together.  Sew the part where the arrows are placed.


Add a closure in the middle.

This literally can take 5 minutes minus hand dying the fabric. Finishing the edges will add more.

  9. A really nice idea, but could you explain how you wear it in pictures 1 and 2? Is it just buttoned on the other side, or is it some other kind of wearing? Thank you!

    1. ^ agreed with Ashley, don't know where the arrows say to sew!

      Delete
    2. sew where the arrows are placed.

      Delete
    3. Um, "sew where the arrows are placed" could be a lot clearer. How much do you sew? Where is the starting point, where is the end point? How much seam allowance? I love this idea, and I've sewn for many moons, but, I'm sorry, I can't tell what you mean. Thanks so much!

  40. I will suggest here that we should always focus on good quality dresses and do not focus on cheap price because you can't get good dresses in cheap price. So, choose quality not cheap price. If you do so, you will improve your personality because good dresses increases your look. Buy Dissertation Online.
