DIY : Sew a Poncho

I needed some distraction from sorting all the stuffs in the storage room and made a poncho. I’ve seen some made from scarfs and it seems like a quick and easy pattern-less project. This is also good for using up those left-over “L” shaped fabrics after you’ve made a top.

All you have to do is cut out two rectangles , do a double fold all over the edges and top stitch over them. Then overlap the long ends , top stitch leaving a hole in the middle. Lace up the sides and you have a poncho ! Quick and easy, isn’t it ?

I like the sides and the back more than the front, actually… I might wear this biking. It should be very breezy.

  2. Love it! Great idea. Do you recall the length of your rectangles? Probably doesn’t matter too much, so long as it’s long enough. Going to give this a try. Thank you for sharing!
