I have been extremely excited to share this one!!!  Ahhh!  I really can not believe how cute this poncho is!!!  I am totally in love.   I just can not believe that I made it.  Yes, if you have read my blog in the past few days; here I am testing again.  And again for the new pattern company Willow & Co.  I had the chance to test four of the patterns that will be released this upcoming Tuesday.  This is my third blog post of the four I will be posting. Two of the patterns were created by Celina of Petit a Patit & Family.  This Poncho included.

The Elm Poncho has a few options as you can see in the photo bellow.   I choose fully lined, patch pockets and visor hood.

Can you see my inspiration?  It was the lining fabric.  You can find it here.  I bought the fabric awhile back and felt the super girls were a little large of a print for Mila so its just been sitting on my shelf.  The outer fabric is pleather from Joann Fabrics. I was so nervous to sew with the pleather.  Turns out it was so easy and kinda nice to skip all that ironing!  I just top stitched everything and used a walking foot.   

A raincoat is what I decided to create!

And not just any raincoat, a SUPER MILA raincoat

The raincoat has been sitting in my living room all week just because I like to look at it : ).
I made the emblem with a these letters.  

Funny to say, but we got lucky and it rained!

Mila stayed dry.

Ready for a bunch more photos : )

Thanks for viewing!!!

Star buttons and yellow snaps were also from Joann fabrics.
