Sew a "Gaming Robe"



One gift I planned to sew my kids this year for Christmas was their own robes. My boys like to take mine and wear them on the weekends. I typically find them snuggled up in them while playing their various weekend video games. A "gaming robe" will be a perfect gift for Christmas break. For the pattern I went with this Indygo Junction's Kimono robe as the base.  I also wanted to add a hoody and pockets for their snacks and controllers when they get in the "gaming mode." I used Dritz Fold-Over Elastic for the belt loops and it can also be used as a binding for the interior and exterior edges. I wanted a quality fabric that was soft and cuddly and the pro's in this field is Shannon Fabrics. Since I was in the "mode" I made one for myself as well...I call it the "But First, Coffee Robe." Get the details below to make your own. 




Supplies:




 Follow the pattern guidelines to construct the main silhouette. I created a liner with the cuddle sherpa because the exterior fabric I used was a bit light for a winter robe. This was done by just sewing another piece. 


Draft a hoody. I used my son's hoody to do this part. I sewed this on with the base as one piece and left the bottom hem open to flip right sides out. 


To create the belt sash simply sew the strip right sides together and flip out with Dritz Loop Turner. This is one of my most used supplies. 

I added some Sew-On Snaps on the pockets as a closure for my son's snacks or phone. I also like that it keeps them closed so they don't hang open. 



  • For the belt loops I cut the Fold-Over Elastic into the proper length. 
  • Fold over the top edges a 1/4" or so. 
  • Fold the elastic length wise and stitch just along the edges (the unfolded side) closing the FOE to form a strip.
  • Top stitch the top edges just along the fold to create the belt loop. 

These turned out so perfect and I know my boys will get good use out of these. It will take everything in me not to take theirs to wear.
