The Warmth and Joy of Handmade Chill Chasers
Winter!! It's just arrived and you're probably reaching for your warmest, wooliest jackets, coats and sweaters! At Indygo Junction, we love the unique warmth and joy that comes from sewing our own quick, cozy wraps. As Winter sneaks in, let’s snuggle into the comfort of well-sewn warmth!
A Pattern with 5 Way Appeal
When you need just a little extra warmth, our 5 Way Wrap is ready for duty! Quick and easy to sew, this versatile vest can be worn and styled in 5 different ways.
To belt or not to belt - style it your way and choose your edge finish! This gorgeous version is stitched in a plaid fleece with a serged edge, but the pattern includes an optional bias edge, too.
It’s the perfect piece for a capsule Winter wardrobe with it’s edge finish options and adorable fabric flower, which is also included in the pattern. We love the soft warmth of this cozy fleece!
Warm, Cozy and Marvelous
Our beautiful Warm & Cozy Wrap is a lovely indoor-outdoor cure for needed extra warmth! Make it in a lightweight, drapey wool blend, flannel or French Terry and it becomes your go-to for a chilly indoor day. It's purely fabulous in the Buffalo Check Primo Plaid line from Marcus Brothers Fabrics!
Stitch it up in a medium weight wool, denim, plush fleece or corduroy and enjoy the warm glow of it’s outdoor coziness. Layer it over sweaters, turtlenecks, jeans or leggings and don’t forget your favorite boots or booties. Sewn in Shannon Fabrics Luxe Cuddle, the wrap above, might be the coziest of all that we've made. In any fabric you choose, the Warm & Cozy is ready for any occasion!
The Warm & Cozy Wrap is the perfect canvas for creative stitching, too! Our friend, Jan, skillfully stitched this amazing Alabama Chanin-style reverse applique version.

Our Facebook Group admin, Annette, added distinct touches of velvet trim and cuffs on her wool tweed Warm & Cozy Wrap.
The bias-cut velvet strips beautifully accented the cape-like sleeve shape and front hand-warmer pockets. With just three pattern pieces, Annette says she's totally in love with how quick and easy this marvelous wrap is to sew!
