I have been extremely excited to share this one!!! Ahhh! I really can not believe how cute this poncho is!!! I am totally in love. I just can not believe that I made it. Yes, if you have read my blog in the past few days; here I am testing again. And again for the new pattern company Willow & Co. I had the chance to test four of the patterns that will be released this upcoming Tuesday. This is my third blog post of the four I will be posting. Two of the patterns were created by Celina of Petit a Patit & Family. This Poncho included.
The Elm Poncho has a few options as you can see in the photo bellow. I choose fully lined, patch pockets and visor hood.
Can you see my inspiration? It was the lining fabric. You can find it here. I bought the fabric awhile back and felt the super girls were a little large of a print for Mila so its just been sitting on my shelf. The outer fabric is pleather from Joann Fabrics. I was so nervous to sew with the pleather. Turns out it was so easy and kinda nice to skip all that ironing! I just top stitched everything and used a walking foot.
A raincoat is what I decided to create!
And not just any raincoat, a SUPER MILA raincoat
The raincoat has been sitting in my living room all week just because I like to look at it : ).
I made the emblem with a these letters.
Funny to say, but we got lucky and it rained!
Mila stayed dry.
Ready for a bunch more photos : )
Thanks for viewing!!!
Star buttons and yellow snaps were also from Joann fabrics.
