I really wanted a cape for the fall/winter, but it is light enough that I realize I can wear it on a spring/summer night or even to the pool if I really wanted too!! I saw a really easy cute tutorial on p.s.imadethis and thought I would give it a try. I tried to find a blanket to reuse but didn’t find one I liked so I found some camel colored stretchy towel like fabric on one side and soft on the other. I thought the soft side out would look really nice. Especially since it was only $2/yd on sale.
Instead of gluing or sewing the edges I left the bottom edge the selvedge and the sides and neckline I used stitchwitchery. I feel like it turned out fantastic and the edges were very neat. I am still trying to figure out if I should sew buttons on the side to create sleeves, leave it open and use a belt/tie, or should I try snaps or ties on the sides? What do you think?
