    Pop in my mind

    I was sitting here thinking what I should make for Christmas this year, pillow cases, purses. I don't know why but pop in my mind, BATHROBE. Has anyone made a quilted bathrobe? Pattern to share? I know my dh is in need of a new one but hard to find heavy robes now.

    Here is a free pattern to get the ideas flowing.

    I think a bathrobe is a great idea. It could be quilted or made of fleece. I suppose if someone is really cold natured you could use cotton and line it with fleece.

    The fabric combinations would be endless and there would be something out there for everyone from babies to grandpas.

    A couple years ago, my favourite housecoat was past it's day. I carefully laid it on some ugly fabric I had, and traced all the pattern pieces around with a magic marker, then cut the pattern from the fabric. Then laid them onto the polar fleece yardage I was using. It's oh so cuddly and warm! And the bonus is, you can make it as long as you want!

    If you wanted a quilted housecoate ... you could quilt your yardage and then cut the quilted fabric. Or cut out the pieces and quilt them before assembly.

    Depending on the weight and warmth desired your sandwich could be ... terry and cotton? fleece and cotton? double cotton and batting? flannelette and cotton? double flannelette? Possibilities are endless!


    Here's another pattern ...

    Check patterns such as McCalls, Simplicity or Butterick. I know they have bathrobe patterns.

    A quilted bathrobe would make an excellent gift!

    I think I'd look for a more tailored pattern, myself, as too much quilted yardage might feel more like a Snuggie than a robe. That said, a quilted Snuggie would be pretty awesome, too!

    You can always add quilted accent such as pockets, belt, cuffs.

    Haven't sewn robes in years but used to. The great snuggly, wrap around kind that didn't require buttonholes! With so many wonderful fleeces, it would be a snap and warmth without weight and easy care. If you didn't want to do the cotton and batting, etc., just wait until Joann's has a sale on their quilted fabric - already done for you. Remember as a kid in the late 50's, early 60's, the robes were made out of pastel, quilted nylon. Yikes I'm showing my age for sure.
