It’s time to sew those 2 rectangles together and do the simple edging to create your wonderful poncho! I have a good friend, Angela, that owns a local boutique shop. She invited me to take some of my finished samples to her for display in the shop. Out of all the samples, this one was her favorite and will now become a front shop display at Matilda Irene Designs. It’s pretty exciting and humbling at the same time to know that my finished items are worthy of being in a local brick and mortar. You may want to check out the website because she sells items on-line as well. Who knows….you may find something cute to wear with your ELK Studio designs!
