Wouldn't it be great if you could just throw a coat over your child's shoulders? A coat that is heavy enough to block some of the brisk fall wind, but not so heavy that it looks like you are heading out to build a snowman? How about a coat that snaps in the crotch so that it does't ride up around that great baby belly? Well, I wanted and couldn't find one...... so I made one!
I am very excited about this lightweight poncho!
It has a snap in the crotch.
And...it is only three pattern pieces!
Cut two of the front and back pieces on the fold - one from the lining and one from the main fabric.
Cut four hood pieces - two main and two lining fabric.
I am going post the pattern pieces for a size 12-18 month poncho (that is the size Eliana is wearing in the pictures) along with a tutorial on how to make one of your own.
