First + foremost, mad props out there to those who know how to sew + double mad props to mom’s that can + do sew regularly.  It is on my bucket list to figure out this sewing world + make my own dress one day!  Until then, I’ll stick to simply gluing things together.  I always see craft projects + think, “OH that looks easy, I can make that!” … which is exactly how my poncho idea came about.  I wanted a poncho to keep me warm at the beach + something super flirty with pom poms attached.  The birth of my DIY No-Sew Sweatshirt Poncho was as easy + thoughtless as that.

Although it’s quite rough around the edges, it actually turned out pretty cute {just like a pet pug, haha}.  It’s simple, easy, fun + fun! Should take about 10 minutes though I spent another 10 minutes washing the sticky icky glue off my fingers. 🙂

:: WHAT YOU NEED ::

scissors

fabric glue

1 yard sweatshirt material

3 yards pom pom trim

:: DIRECTIONs + NOTEs ::

 …it’s as easy as 1-2-3

1 – wash + dry your fabric

2 – fold fabric in half + cut about a 12 inches slit {big enough for your head to fit through}

cut

3 – lay material flat with fabric side down + line inside edge with glue to press your pom pom trim on all 4 sides

glue

…TADA, you are done!!!  

done

…Wait a few hours for it to fully dry + at least 24 hours before you wash it again.
