Towel Poncho

Nothing feels better tan terry cloth after a swim, and a towel poncho is everything that a towel is not; It will not require one hand to hold it when its wearer is eating ice cream, and it will not unceremoniously unwrap

How to

Fold towel in half so ends meet;cut a half eclipse for neck in center of fold and a 3 inch wide eclipse to the right of it; open towel. For kids 4 and up, make tie closure; Finish edges of large eclipse with double fold bias tape,then finish small one, leaving two 15 inch tails. For kids under 3, make a button closure,using two buttons no smaller than 1 1/3 inches in diameter. Start tape at center point and cover small ellipse, then larger, leaving 3 inch tail. Loop tail and stitch down;place buttons on opposite sides of fabric so hole align;stitch together. Cut pocket from a washcloth;finish sides and bottom with bias tape;fold top under and hem. Sew onto poncho
