Beach Ponchos

Tatertots and Jello recently had a guest tutorial from The Funky Polkadot Giraffe. I love both of these blogs! The tute was for a Hooded Beach Poncho. At first, I thought I might just file it away in my "someday" pile, but then I read these words:

We have swimming lessons starting in a week and one thing that drives me crazy is the dragging of the towels across the parking lot or the crying 2 year old because she can't keep her towel on and she's "freezing". The insanity!!!!

My kids always complain about how cold they are when they get out of the pool and this is the perfect solution! Therefore, I knew I had to make some.

I added a little bit of fabric trim to mine though. Rockets for Finn (orange towel OF COURSE):

And some polka dots for Kiki:

Doubles as loungewear!

Linking up here.


  1. They turned out so cute!!! I love the cute edging you added.

  2. P.S. I'd love for you to link up to my Flickr group!

  3. I love these and I NEED to make some for my kids. They always cry getting out of the pool!

  4. What a great idea! I know from babysitting experience, what a pain towels can be & this is very chic & practical!

  5. Cute! My 5 year old LOVES orange too. Has ever since he was 12 months old. They turned out great! I made beach robes for my boys as well yesterday for swim lessons. They really are must haves for kids!
    Thanks for linking to the party!


  6. I like this idea! I definitely need to try my hand at this. Also I love your blog! I've been hanging out here for a while and it's awesome! Especially the skirt to purse tutorial! I've also noticed that we share the same Zodiac Sign which I'm in love with! My birthday is in August! So from one Virgo to another happy Creating!!!!
