More and more often, quilting is getting eclipsed by, you guessed it, kid sewing. It might not be as creatively satisfying, but I do love seeing DT running around playing with or wearing something I've made for them. This time, it's hooded beach ponchos.
Most of the tutorials I found required a bath towel and a hand towel, but I wanted to use these two beach towels from the collection. (The light is very wonky here... yikes!)
this tutorial from Fireflies and Jellybeans that didn't require anything extra, so off I went. I adapted it for the size of the towels I had and opted keep the body of the towel (and poncho) as one piece and cut a slit instead of making a shoulder seam. It seemed like a tidier look to me. Instead of pinning the hood to the towel, I used my trusty Wonderclips. Honestly, what did I do before these?
I'm linking up with TGIFF @ What A Hoot Quilts as well as Finish Up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts. It's a small finish and it's #notaquilt, but sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do!
