Sun, sea and pom-poms… the perfect combination! We’ll show you how to make a light beach poncho out of colorful fabric and a pom-pom border, so you can face the summer in style!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- 2 metres of light fabric
- 6 metres of pom-pom border
- Sewing Machine
- Bowl (for tracing the collar)
Fabric consumption depends on your body size and how long you want your poncho to be.
SO LET’S GET STARTED!
Fold the fabric once in the middle. Now draw a semicircle with a bowl in the middle of the centre fold, which you then cut out. Of course it’s also possible for you to create a v-neck instead. Serge the fabric and then make a hem at the neck. If you don’t have an overlock machine, go straight for the hem. We counted a 1 cm seam allowance.
Fold the fabric lengthways so that only half the neck becomes visible. Take your marking tool and trace a generous arc. Provide a wide seam allowance. Cut.
Now take the pom-pom border and place it all around the fabric edges of the poncho, before finally sewing it together the whole way around.
It’s as simple as that!
