Sometimes a fun fabric just hits you over the head. This happened to me. While walking through the fashion district, a clearance bolt in one of the sidewalk drums tipped and struck me. It was a very interesting and thick woodland knit and it was only $1.99 meter! I scanned the squirrel for you up top. I knew this fabric would be perfect for Between the Lines' single seam poncho. It was.
Hemming took a little while as I decided to live dangerously and branch out from the standard straight or zigzag stitch. Katy from No Big Dill recently posted a tutorial for the Billi Cardi on luvinthemummyhood where she used an interesting stitch. Inspired and courageous, I chose this stitch for all the hemming and really like the finished look. The diagonal strip is the fabric "wrong" side.
