Create a Cozy Poncho!

4.0 based on 2 ratings

What You Need:

  • 30" square piece of of polar fleece fabric (makes one kid-sized poncho. If you would like to make an adult-sized poncho, use a 60" square)
  • Sharp scissors
  • Large plastic bowl
  • Marker
  • Large wooden or plastic beads of your choice

What You Do:

  1. Have your child fold the square of fabric diagonally.
  2. Place a large bowl in the center of the edge of the folded piece and outline a semi-circle with your marker. The semi-circle should be about 5” across.
  3. Cut out the semicircle, then unfold. Instant poncho!
  4. Next, make 3' cuts into around the bottom of the poncho to create a fringe.
  5. With your child, decide on a pattern that you will use to string beads into the fringe of the poncho. Once each piece of fringe is beaded, make sure to tie a knot at the end!

Your poncho is complete! You've created a warm and fuzzy original design to wear or share. Make more to share as holiday or birthday gifts for family and frends!
