Affording a little privacy is easy whilst on the go from your car to the surf! If you need a humble cover so you can change into your swimwear, then this is the Instructable for you!
Step 1: Needs...
-Two towels of similar size.
Step 2: Instructions:
Lay one towel over another.
Connect two corners, and add two additional rivets to creat the shoulders of your poncho.
Tip: Towels don't stretch much, so allow for enough room to let your head (and articles of clothing) through.
Step 3: A Few More...
A few more connections at both sides of the towels creates the coverage for your poncho.
Allow for enough room to let your hands through (like pockets, to let you loosen up or dawn any clothing while still covered).
Step 4: That's It!
I used a total of 10 zip ties to put this thing together, but I prepped the connections with rivets.
4 zip ties to make the "top", and 6 (3 on L and 3 on R side) to make the "sides" of the poncho.
Step 5: Inspect
Check your work, cut off any pointy ends, and applaud your work!
Step 6: Practicality...
This poncho is reversible, easy to make and maintain, and if you used older towels, then it's fairly affordable!
Use it in all seasons, before and after surfing, to dry up, to block wind, for privacy while changing, and even for lounging around! :)
