Q:

How do you make a no-sew fleece poncho?

A:

To make a no-sew fleece poncho, cut a large square of fleece. Fold it in half twice and cut a curved quarter-circle out of the middle point to make a hole for your head.

  1. Measure your body

    Using a flexible measuring tape, measure up your arm from your right wrist, over your shoulder and across to the middle of your throat. Double that measurement to get the width of your poncho.

  2. Cut the fleece material

    On your chosen fleece fabric, measure out a square using the measurement from step 1. Ensure that each edge is as even as possible, but don't worry about getting it perfectly straight.

  3. Cut a hole for your head

    Measure from the base of your neck down to the point on your chest where you would like the poncho neckline to reach; this is your neckline radius. Fold your square of fleece in half. Then, fold the rectangle in half lengthwise to form a smaller square. Tie a fabric marker to a string and, using the marker as one end point, mark off the length of your neckline radius. Position the mark on the string at the folded point of fleece and hold it in place. Stretch the marker out over one edge of the fleece and drag it across the fleece to draw a quarter-circle. Cut along this line to create a hole for your head.
