Beach Towel Poncho

Free Custom Photo Calendars

A creative way to re-use your towels and keep kids dry!

What You’ll Need:
*Beach towel
*Sewing Machine

*If you are using a new towel, wash and dry according to instructions.

*Fold your towel in half, right sides out. Along the top fold, cut out a “V” shape. The size of the “V” will depend on the size of your child. Start small, see if it will fit over their heads. If not, make it a bit bigger and try again.

*Run a stitch along the V-shaped neckhole to keep the towel from fraying.

*Fold your towel in half with right-sides in. Pin the long sides together.

*Sew each side together, leaving about a 5 to 6 inch opening at the end with the fold for armholes. Remove pins & turn right side out.

*Send us a picture of your kids wearing their ponchos and we may post it to our site!
