It's been a while since my last post due to the fatigue of pregnancy.
However, I back to feeling normal again after delivering a beautiful baby boy last week and I will share details on the blog later.
Today's post is about a poncho that I made for my niece in January..... Yes, January....
I did post this on Instagram but I didn't take the time to put it on the blog due to just being tired.
I feel that this deserves a blog post because it is so simple, cute and easy to make.
You don't don't even need a whole hour to make this because there are only two side seams and a collar to sew up.
I did add trim to the bottom of the poncho to jazz it up, but it was not necessary..... Just my personal taste.
I also made the matching beanie hat. This too was very easy to make (she has it on backwards on the pics).
