One Down... Two To Go

Roughly a 30" square piece of polyester satin lining fabric. Side edges hemmed. Top hemmed to make a drawstring pocket.

1 yard length of silver cord.

No need to hem that bottom edge... leave that salvage (if in good condition) as intentional fringe. No one will know the difference.

Knot the ends of your cord so they don't unravel.

Ta Da!

1/2 a yard of fabric for $1.25, 1 yard of silver cord for $2.
Super hero cape (or devil, or magician, etc) for $3.25.

More on all this later. Seriously. A lot freaking more.

What/who is this for?

super, indeed. i made una a princess cape last year and i love it. i end up wearing it quite a bit when we dress up, since it's the only thing that fits (surprise, surprise, i don't fit into the child-sized dress-ups). so, all i'm saying is the capes are quite versatile and you never know if a grown up is going to benefit from it as well.

Elizabeth,
Mr F's nephews that he never bought b'day gifts for. I finally felt I had to cave. I made them each a cape and will wrap it up and put it in their xmas envelope. But I have FEELINGS about it... so I'll write it up tomorrow ;)


MP,
I've decided to get a whole rainbow of colors and whip these up for b'day gifts. Easy. Fast. Versatile.

my boys would have LOVED these when they were younger. Hell, they probably would still love them.
