|Wish I had a little model to show it on.|
These are for a toddler's poncho, they can easily be made up to the width of the fleece for larger children.
3/4 yd. Fleece Fabric
Scrap of fleece and button for yo-yo if desired.
- Cut fabric into a 27" square (this amount of fleece should make two).
- Fold in half like a triangle.
- Cut a circle in the middle for the head opening. I cut one about 4 1/2" in diameter (I used a small soup mug as a pattern). Because fleece stretches it should stretch over a toddler's head and if it needs enlarged it can be easily cut or a small slit made straight down the front.
- I also used the mug as a pattern to round all of the corners.
- Option #1: cut fringe around the bottom edge.
- Option #2: decorate with a yo-yo.
- Cut a piece of fabric (I used fleece to match the dress) into a circle twice the size of the finished yo-yo you desire--mine is about 4" finished.
- With needle & thread make a running stitch about 1/4" from edge of circle and draw up tightly to gather and tack together.
- Place in center front of neck and stitch down with button in the middle. I also tacked it along the neck edge slightly for added holding power.
Tip: Purchase fleece blankets on clearance and cut into ponchos.
