And if you were really paying attention - you might recognize the cute buffalo check blanket that I used as a photo prop for the woven basket.
Because that’s the exact same blanket - I sewed it up into my poncho wrap!
In doing my research (ummm… examining wraps at the mall) I discovered that the secret to making a rectangular piece of fabric into a wrap with a collar is to sew an elastic casing with 1’’ elastic at the back.
The elastic draws the fabric together (in about the same place as your shoulder blades) and makes a nice collar!
Pair this outfit with some leggings and boots and you are ready to go.
I’m working on a tutorial for this poncho wrap this weekend, so it should be ready to post soon.
Or if you’d rather, you could use 2 yards of cozy fabric that is 50” wide or wider.
For my tutorial, I used fabric and I will show you how to give it fringe similar to the blanket version.
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
