Poncho for Barbie from Dollar Tree 2.5" Wide Ribbon -No Sew

As soon as I saw this cute plaid ribbon at Dollar Tree I envisioned a holiday poncho for Barbie. Even better, it's a no-sew poncho for Barbie. The ribbon design reminds me of a warm, woven wool. Ribbon, hot glue and 20 minutes of your time are all that's needed to create this fun outerwear garment for your doll. You can leave it plain or add some fancy sewing trim to the bottom. Barbie says, oh yea, she's a fancy kinda gal...
The trim makes it look more finished and adds a little fun, good options include: 
Pom-poms, rick-rack, fringe, pretty ribbon, beads, etc.
Lovin' these itty pom-poms I found among some Christmas ribbon at Walmart a year or so ago😊

Side view:

The ribbon I started with:

7" long piece of ribbon that's 2 1/2" wide
3" long piece of ribbon that's 2 1/2" wide
trim for edges if desired
Hot glue or Liquid Stitch (Liquid Stitch will take longer to dry)

1. Tuck under and glue 1/4" of shorter piece to the bottom of the 7" piece.
2. If using trim, ***please ignore this picture and just glue it on once the poncho is complete***
3. Glue second side of shorter ribbon 1/4" under 7" piece, creating a cone type shape. (If you lay the 7" ribbon over the doll's right shoulder and wrap the short end around the other shoulder, it will make sense.)
4. Note: If the opening for her head is a bit tight after you finish the poncho, you can open up the seam in the back a tad to make it easier for kids to dress the doll.
5. Now Barbie's ready for cooler weather and the holidays😉 


  1. I love the colors, I think I saw a poncho like that the last time I was in Mexico LOL! Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us at the Creative Muster. Looking forward to seeing what you’ll be sharing next week!

  3. Hi, Lynn, what could be easier than a ribbon poncho. I pull the wire out and make scarves of the narrower Christmas ribbons. Great ideas! Hugs, Sandi
