How to Sew a One-Yard Fleece Hooded Poncho is such a perfect beginner sewing project. Check it out.Look 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.
Head on over to the It’s Sew Easy website for many more fabulous sewing projects and showtime information.

A Hooded Baby Towel is another great beginner sewing project that makes a great gift.
Have leftover fleece scraps? Make a Fleece Pom-Pom Garland. So cute for any holiday or as a nursery decoration.
