This was supposed to be a very quick project, but these days it is hard to find a continuous half hour of free time, so it sat on my sewing chair for a number of weeks. During my pregnancy I bought a red wool poncho when my winter coats got snug. It has pockets and arm holes, and is nice and thick. I loved how this one had a cute bow on the back, and the hood was ringed with faux fur. It made me think of Red Riding Hood, if she had a souvenir from the Wolf.
I decided it would be nice to continue wearing the poncho with my costumes, but wanted to replace the toggle clasps with something a little less modern-looking, so I used 6 pairs of beaded black frogs.
This is what the hood looked like before.
The frogs totally change the look, love it!
