No-sew ponchos are inexpensive and fast to make. Fleece does not ravel and so there is never a need to sew a hem when using fleece. An adult poncho can fit many different shapes and sizes, which makes the poncho a gift that will please any woman. Make a few ponchos and save them for presents or keep them for yourself. Fleece ponchos can be tossed on as a quick cover-up or just warm up on a chilly night.

Purchase one yard of 60-inch fleece for an adult poncho.
Lay the material on a flat surface with the fold at the top (the fleece will be purchased with a fold, do not open the material). Grab the top right corner and cross it over the material until the right corner touches the left top corner.
Smooth the material to ensure there are no wrinkles in the four layers, especially in the top right corner.
Place the end of a tape measure at the top right corner and measure down 5-inches on the right side of the material. Use a fabric marker to place a line at the 5-inch measurement.
Place the end of the tape measure at the top right corner and measure to the left across the top fold. Use a fabric marker to place a line at the 5-inch measurement.
Mark two or three more 5-inch measurements between the side and top marks. Use the fabric marker to make an arc connecting the 5-inch marks.
Keep the material folded and use sharp scissors to cut along the fabric guide line. Open the material and slip the poncho over your head. Make the head hole larger by refolding the material and cutting the hole slightly larger.
Cut a 4-inch square cardboard template and place the template in one corner of the poncho. Trace the two sides of the template. Remove the template and cut out the corner of the poncho. Repeat this step on the other three sides.
Measure and cut 1-inch wide strips that are 4-inches long around the perimeter of the poncho.
Tie a knot at the base of each 4-inch length of fringe.
