Beach Towel Poncho
Lulu and Emme love ponchos. Lulu has been taking swim lessons. I am always re wrapping her in her towel after class...so...you can hear the wheels turning...towel poncho! I've seen simpler type towel ponchos that are basically a towel folded in half with a slit put in it. This one requires a bit more effort but I think is sooooo much cuter and you can twirl in it!! Plus you can wear it with one arm out -- Grecian style. If I find a thinner towel I may put elastic in the neck band so it is much more versatile for playing with pool side - she can wear it as a strapless dress or skirt or on her head.....
Look how cute! I used two complimentary beach towels. You should be able to get 2 toddler sized ponchos out of the towels. I used the factory finished edge for the top piece. I cut out 3 triangle shaped panels from each towel (6 total). Sewed the panels together, alternating the pattern as I went. Sewed the "skirt" to the neck piece . Finished with a ribbon hem. I eyeball measured the neck piece and the length. I wasn't used to working with such a thick material so my sewing isn't that straight but all in all a one night project.
