Cool Crafting Skye Wrap

Oh my goodness, this was a quick and easy make!  It's the Skye Wrap from Cool Crafting, and I first came upon it on Cheryl from Stitchy Bee's vlog when she made it last year. 



It's basically a rectangle, and one side is sewn closed with some buttons.  It is also fully lined.



My fabric is some wool from Sew Over It which I used to make the Sew Over It Tulip skirt here.   I got it ages ago, so I don't suppose it's available any more.  My lining is some lilac polyester from my stash, and I have no idea where I got it. The buttons are 40mm coconut buttons from Totally Buttons.




I think the thing that took the longest with this was measuring out the  fabric to cut it out, and who doesn't love a project like that?!


I blinking love this, especially how the neckline folds back on itself.  And I'm very much enjoying swanning around in it pretending that I'm Margaret Rutherford; but in fairness, nobody could rock a cape quite like her!



I'm now very taken with this Traveller Cape from Twig and Tale, so am on the lookout for some fabric for it.

 
 

Have a great weekend, and I hope it's filled with sewing!
