Easy as Cake!

Yesterday Naomi & I made a cape together. We’re working on several ‘sewing’ projects together, which generally means she takes scraps & cuts/taps/pins/explains to herself what they are while I get the grunt of the actual project done. I LOVE it. It’s a true replication of my childhood.

Anyhow. We made a cape & if your child doesn’t have one, get to it–seriously! 30 minutes for loads of fun…

All you need is a rectangle of material, approx. 50″x30″. Baste/iron down one 50″ edge & then fold it over & sew about 3/4″ for a chord to go through. (we used yarn, but I think i’ll upgrade when I find something better), & finishing the edges all the way around would make it even nicer…

For an added ruffle around the collar: fold the top 50″ basted edge down 1.5″ & make an additional seem along the top edge (AFTER it’s been sewed down). Once you pull the chord this will cinch & make a nice ruffle.
