February Sewing: Plaid Poncho and Fleece Vest

Due to some health issues, I've not been sewing much and posting even less. So I'm playing catch up here. These are the 2 items I made in February.

First is a plaid poncho.  I used a piece of plaid flannel that I got at WalMart.  It was $3.00 yd and I used 2 yards.  I didn't use a pattern for this.  I cut 3 rectangles and sewed them together at the shoulders.  I planned to add black fringe to the hem, and I may still do that later.

Next is a black and white fleece vest.  I had the fleece left over from pj pants I made for my DGD.  I didn't have enough of the print fleece, so I used solid black for the back.  For the lining, I used a white silky that I had in my stash.   I think it needs some type of closure.  But it got warm before I got around to wearing it, so I'll worry about that next winter.

I started with this pattern, but changed the shape of the front hemline. 

I used the collar from this pattern:


  1. I'm sorry to hear you have not been well - I was wondering what was happening.
    Welcome back - nice garments,good simple things to start with.

  2. I'm lovin' that plaid poncho! (and I'm not a big poncho fan). Hope you are feeling better!

  3. Feel better! I like these pieces, especially the B/W vest.
