This week, for the next episode of Sew Together Tuesday, our National Educator Teresa Coates is tackling a project for apparel sewists (and aspiring apparel sewists)!
She's featuring the 90-Minute Poncho pattern by Mary Mulari Designs, and like most projects featured in this series, it can be customized to your heart’s content. It looks great with or without a front pocket, lined or unlined and can feature a cowl or hood.

A Cuddle® poncho isn’t just cozy at home — it’s great for everything for staying warm while out at sporting events, to chilly nights camping or out on the porch. Making a poncho is easier than it looks, as it’s just one piece of fabric and no seaming necessary.
We're at Interior Connection & Quilt Cabin this week — let’s get started.
