Fashion DIY Tutorial: Poncho “Gilda Strale”

The other day I was back at Ikea and, although I only accompanied my friend to the furniture store, I bought a lot of stuff. And fortunately, I have become weak. Otherwise, I would have left the super-soft knit bedspread “Gilda Strale” (which was cut-rat from EUR 14.99 to EUR 7.99) in its miserable existence as bedspreads and it never would have become a beautiful poncho.

Material And Tools – For This DIY Project You Need

  1. Ikea GILDA Strale bedspread or other knit blanket (dimensions: 130×170 cm)
  2. Pins
  3. A nice closure
  4. Needle and thread
  5. Measuring tape (not pictured)

DIY Tutorial: The Step-By-Step Craft Instructions

DIY Step 1

Fold the small side of the bedspread (from 130 to 65 cm) and fix it with pins.

DIY Step 2

Sew each side from the edge to a length of about 42 centimeters and leave the rest (the center) open. Take care to sew close to the border. So the seam will look almost invisible.

DIY Step 3

Put on your poncho in front of the mirror and determine the most appropriate place for the closure. Temporarily fix the closure with pins.

DIY Step 4

Sew the closure to the poncho. DONE!
