The 8 teachers capes are all finished. Two of each colour with their house letters on the back. I chose a font from the computer called Yearbook and enlarged it by 800%. Two in blue.
Two in green.
Two in red.
And two in yellow. They are in two kinds of fabric, the black background is from a wool coat, ironed onto a heavy iron on interfacing, then the top colour was done in felt and sewn onto the black, then the black was sewn onto the cape. except the blue was done in cotton drill because that is what i had. The neck draw string is an artificial leather which i unraveled from a braided belt from Savers.


  1. They are amazing Sue.
    I LOVE them.
    Thanks so so so so much.
    These will be worn by our teachers for years to come. I am sure!!
    I'll come and set up your tree on Saturday.
