How to Sew a One-Yard Fleece Hooded Poncho

How to Sew a One-Yard Fleece Hooded Poncho is such a perfect beginner sewing project. Check it out.DIY Baby Fleece Poncho Tutorial ProjectLook at little five-year-old Clare in her One-Yard fleece poncho!! She is 13 now, can you believe it? This project is still such a winner! I thought I would share it again just in case you are here because you received a new sewing machine for Christmas. OR maybe your goal for 2021 is to finally learn how to use the one you have!

Here is the original post and video that we made back in the day.

A while back, Jaime and I appeared on PBS’s It’s Sew Easy and shared a super simple One-Yard Fleece Hooded Poncho project. Since it’s getting brisk outside I’m excited to stitch up a few more for my favorite girls and boys. The best part is all the creative fun you can have adding trim and embellishment to make each poncho an original. Watch the video, as seen on It’s Sew Easy, to see how we made the poncho and then incorporated ribbon, pom-poms, bias tape, suede fringe and embroidery accents.

what do you think is the largest size you could squeeze out with a single yard? my math brain isn’t working, and i am having trouble figuring how to calculate the max possible wing span less the need to save a rectangle for the hood.

i’d like to do a batch for the cousins/nieces for holiday gifts.

I love this! If you embellish the hood with ribbon as above (or something else where you’re not enclosing the edge as you would with bias tape), do you hem the hood under? It looks like it, but I can’t quite tell what you did there – these will be my little girl holiday gifts! Thanks!

Love it! Gah I love your American accents! I know you’re in the US but it blows my mind everytime I hear a bloggers accent!
P.S. I’m in Australia, probably should’ve mentioned that sooner, bit random otherwise :/

I made one yesterday for my 3 year old and the ratio of effort to cuteness can’t be beat – so easy – thank you!!

Hi! I am wanting to make the poncho in your baby poncho tutorial. In the docx file it references the website to find more ideas on how to embellish the poncho by adding trim and also lining the hood. It also states I can find a size chart. I tried looking but I could not find anything. Was this ever posted to the website?

Could you please create a pattern for an adult version of this? Would love to have one but I’m not good at pattern-making or alteration.

I plan on making this for my daughter. She loves soccer and is in the backyard with her siblings every chance she gets. This will be fun for me and useful for her. Perfect!
