A  shrug or bolero for this changing season is great… easy to put on and easy to take of! And if we do this in a fabric like this grey velvet or any other fabric with a little shine to it, we can use it both at night and by day. It’s cool to wear at work with jeans for a casual cool look and over any lacy top for those chilly spring night outs.

In this tutorial I will show you to sew a velvet shrug from 3 fabric rectangles. Ready to start this DIY? Let’s do it!
