This Child Fleece Robe DIY is perfect for chilly winter nights and mornings.
With the softness and warmth of fleece this is sure to be a go to for your little one to snuggle into just before bed. The Child Fleece Robe DIY pattern and instructions are straight forward making this confident beginner project. If you decide to substitute the fleece for terrycloth be sure to use the proper stitching and finish the seams to avoid unraveling. If you use fleece there is no need to worry about finishing the seams as the fleece is soft and won’t unravel.
There’s nothing more comfortable than curling up in a soft fleece robe. My daughter’s have been asking for one for a long time, so drafting this pattern was a perfect excuse to sew them up!
The robe includes a generous hood, flowing sleeves, and an attached belt. It is meant to hit around the knees, but it is easy to lengthen if you prefer a longer robe. The front edge is finished off with double fold bias tape and is a great place to add a coordinating or contrasting pop of colour.
I sewed my versions out of a super soft cuddle fleece. My daughters love the warmth and texture; just be prepared for a bit of mess while you are sewing since it does shed! The robe can also be sewn out of regular fleece or terry cloth.
