Don't Blink Poncho

Continuing to work on projects that I have just waiting I decided to make a poncho using this fun Doctor Who fabric I bought on sale last year. A print this size deserves to be something big that doesn't chop up the print. 
The first thing I had to do was clean off some of this workspace. Cutting fabric for quilting isn't difficult with less space, but when it comes to cutting fleece for garment sewing I need room and less clutter. 
Afterwards there was space to work and and think. Sometimes the clutter gets in the way of my ability to create. It's funny.
First was construction of the the yoke and collar. I didn't use any interfacing (as directed in the pattern instructions) because fleece doesn't really need any. And, using fusible interfacing on fleece is just silly. 
By lunch time I as almost done. After my lunch break I had a finished poncho. Looking at it now, I think I may have miscalculated the direction of the print. The weeping angels may be all different directions but the text looks to be mostly going the other direction. Maybe I should make another. I still have fabric!

Don't blink!
