    Like a quilted snuggie?

    I actually make a lap blanket/cape for my son who uses a wheelchair--it's sized to tuck in all around him but leave his arms free. But I've not made one that is quilted, exactly, because in our climate, a fleece and gortex combo works better.

    Oh no! What have you started? Next we will see the quilted shawls on TV infomercials replacing the snuggly. What will they call them? Quallies? Shwuilts?

    sounds like a great idea...I keep my house quite cool and it would feel really good to have that over my shoulders...what about lining with something like minkee...that would be really snuggly!

    During the 70s energy crisis there were things called Snug Sacks. They were just quilts that had snaps all along the edges. I made them for all of us since I kept the house pretty chilly. They were better than Snuggies because your back didn't get cold when you got up. And they could be used as a cover if you wanted to. I made one for my DIL last Christmas and she loves it. The smaps are placed so that it came over the shoulder and made sleeves. I may have to make me a new one.!!

    It seems like a saw one in the Simplicity pattern book in the craft section. It may have been included in a pattern with other walker or wheelchair accessories. The nice part it didn't hang down. - just was like a little cape. There's no reason it couldn't be patchwork and quilted as long it was done with soft batting like flannel and not overquilted. I'd like one for me.

    That sound like it could be a lot of fun. And then we get to use them for the cold winter months!

    Oh wow. Just thought today I need another shawl, one that's wider and longer than the ones they sell in the shops so I can wrap it around me the way I like, and in the colors I love and a pattern that's... hmmmm can I make a quilt shawl!??

    So I get on here to ask whether anyone has ever made one... and here you all are already planning! lol

    Great board.

    I just saw this thread. This is great! It's funny but I took a small jelly roll to make the 10 minute jelly roll quilt and then realized it was really too small for a quilt. However, I thought it lookedl ike the perfect size for a prayer shawl and that's what I'm planning to finish it as. I'm just waiting for the backing I ordered to arrive. Once I finish a few other projects, I'll have to try these 2 patterns. I will post a picture of one I'm working on when I finish.

    We could make a matching set - a lap quilt and a matching shawl! The lap quilt could be thrown off for getting up for ease of walking around and then the shawl can be kept around the shoulders for the warmth.

    Hmmmmm - what a great nursing home resident present idea!
