I wanted to make a longer shrug like this one: http://wkdesigner.files.wordpress.com/2007/09/coccoon-shrug1.jpg?w=500, but had a really hard time finding a pattern. I finally just draped my fabric around my dress form, and added a piece at the bottom to make up the length. The fabric is an interesting sheer with puffy yarn threads through it, which I figured the easiest way to finish would be to bind the edges. I ended up sewing the binding on by hand, which was by far the most time-consuming part of the project.
