    Hi DIY Divas

    I recently posted an image on Instagram asking YOU what you wanted me to DIY. And you massively voted for Nr.3 a poncho sweater.

    I used a plaid fleece fabric for this project and it created a cozy, colorful sweater. I had to get used to wearing so much volume on top but now I like it.

    Hope you enjoy this DIY Tutorial too & Thanks for watching!

    DIY Poncho Sweater

    Nov 03, 2016 / Jocelina Paixao Fortes

    Hi DIY Divas

    I wanted to create an easy sewing tutorial for the Fall season. When it gets colder I love working
    with thicker fabrics such as fleece fabric and I'm 'sew' excited I get to use my own fabric for this DIY Poncho Sweater tutorial!

    The fleece fabric from Digital Fabrics is thinner compared to the regular one but that makes it nicer to work with as it will drape and fall better because of this.

    Enjoy this DIY Tutorial & Thanks for watching!
