  1. 1

    Purchase fleece material from a sewing or craft store. Purchase 3/4 yard of fleece for toddlers and a yard of fleece for bigger girls. This amount of material will make 2 ponchos.

  2. 2

    Lay the fleece flat, and cut it in half. Cut each half into a square shape. Toddlers will need a square that is roughly 27 inches by 27 inches, and bigger girls will need a square approximately 30 inches by 30 inches.

  3. 3

    Fold one square of fleece in half diagonally. Match all corners and edges, making sure that the fold is even.

  4. 4

    Use a measuring tape to find the middle of the folded edge of the fleece. Mark the middle and then mark about 3 inches from the center on either side of the middle mark.

  5. 5

    Cut a semi-circle on the folded edge between the markings on either side of the middle. Use a bowl for a pattern to make the semi-circle even.

  6. 6

    Open the poncho up and lay it flat. Make 1 1/2 inch cuts every inch all the way around the edges of the poncho.

  7. 7

    Tie a knot in each piece of fringe. Add extra flair to the poncho by slipping a large bead on each piece of fringe and then tying a knot.

Tips and warnings

  • Make two ponchos from one cut of material. After cutting the yard in half, square both pieces and use them both.
  • Purchase fleece at the end of winter for the best prices.
  • Purchase fleece at the beginning of the fall season for the best selection of fleece.
  • Carefully measure before cutting.
