Capes Continued.

 Lots of sewing done today, 12 girls capes ready, just need to add the velcro to the neck pieces.
 Starting on the boys capes now. I made the girls in exactly the same way. The lining is cut to the correct size, and to make it easier, the outer was roughly cut slightly larger, It just saves me time. Pin well all around.
 Sew all the way around leaving an opening in the bottom to turn it through.
 Cut it out neatly.
 Clip the curves.
 Turn it the right way out and pin the opening closed
 Top stitch all the way around.
Add the logo, these are made of wool felt. and the velcro to the neck edge and you are done. I have 11 more boys capes cut out and paired up ready to sew.


  1. Tilli is extra helpful with her supervision. I like your cape pattern. I'm sure the recipients will have the best time with them. :)

  2. The capes look great Sue, I love the way you make them, that's a great tip to use in lots of patterns, I'll remember that for when I'm making baby bibs.
