Upcycled Poncho Class
Step by Step Video Based Online Sewing Class
Have you tried reading sewing patterns and just can't figure them out? (no sewing patterns needed)
Do you have some old t-shirts or old jeans that you want to do something with but have no clue where to start?
Maybe you've been looking for something unique in your size and it's just not happening?
I totally get it - I was in your shoes, i remember early in my creative life trying to read sewing patterns and walking away in frustration. When I first started upcycling I had no clue where to make the first cut much less what the finished look would be.
I will walk you through step by step and the best part is no pattern is needed!! I will teach you how to create clothing you will love by starting with a shirt and adding to it to create a poncho that you will love - and I bet you will want to make more than one!
So grab some t-shirts or old jeans you want to upcycle and I will show you how to make something that you will love and wear!
In this class I will show you how to cut out squares and rectangles and then piece them together to make a poncho!! These poncho can be worn year round!
Take a shopping trip to your local Thrift Store or even your closet and pick out some old t-shirts, vintage rock t-shirts or old jeans. I will show you step by step through video instruction!! I also give you details on my facebook group so you can stay connected and links to my Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration! Come join 100's of others that have already taken lots of my classes and learn how to create something you will love and wear!
My style of teaching is very laid back and down to earth - you can work at your own pace and pause the video whenever you want and rewatch it as many times as you like! I'm always more than eager to answer any questions or clarify something - just the other day i made a short video tutorial to clarify a question a customer had on another class and posted it to my facebook group and then also posted it in the original class!
I will show you how to make a Poncho similar to the ones below :)
The poncho above has sleeves - I will show you how to do them with or without sleeves! You can use old t-shirts, flannel or jeans!
