An easy tutorial on how to make your own hooded cape

You will need:

  • Any Fabric (approx. 1.5m x 1.5m). You could have it bigger for a longer cape
  • Ribbon (approv 1 - 1.5m)
  • Needle & Thread/Sewing Machine

Method:

1. Hem the fabric if you want to, I was lucky to find a piece of over-locked fabric in my stack of scraps so I didn’t have to hem mine.

2.Fold the fabric in half with the inside facing outwards.

3.Sew the top of the fabric together then turn the fabric inside out (or actually the right way around), to hide where you have just sewn.

4.Measure approximately 40cm from the top of the cape, this is where you ribbon will be threaded. Cut slits at 20cm spaces around the whole cape. Make sure your slits are wide enough for your ribbon to fit through.

5.Thread your ribbons through these slits.

6.Try on your cape and tie your ribbon in a bow around your neck!

I also made my husband's Wolf Costume out of one of his caps and some felt.
