Yesterday was the first day of Kwanzaa, an “annual celebration of African-American culture that is held from December 26 to January 1” (from Wikipedia). So in honor of Kwanzaa, I wanted to post my African heritage poncho pattern.
This will be the first time I’ve offered this pattern as a PDF. It was originally a pattern I designed to fit Lammily dolls, but for a long time, I’ve been meaning to show that it also fits both Ken and Barbie as well.
To make my African print Kwanzaa poncho, you’ll need some small-print African-style cotton fabric, fringe, and solid-color cotton fabric. There’s also an optional pom-pom edging on the flip side of my poncho (because it’s reversible).
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- Momoko dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- vintage Barbie dolls
- Tall Barbie dolls
- vintage Francie dolls
- Ken dolls
- Lammily dolls
Here are your free, printable PDF sewing patterns and tutorial videos for making the outfit shown at the top of this page:
