The Cape-ron (It's a cape AND an apron!)

My friend Matt really likes to bake and he also thinks he’s a superhero. So, the idea came about that he wanted to combine a cape and an apron and call it a Cape-ron. And that’s exactly what he got!
I didn’t use a pattern for this and mostly just eyed it.
Really, all I did was cut a semicircle and sew on some bias tape, then I added a D-ring on one side of the neck so he could adjust accordingly. I just cut a circle out of another coordinating fabric for his superhero circle and I cut out a “M” to applique to the middle of the cape.

Material Notes

Cotton/poly blend, Metal D-ring, bias tape.

    The cape-ron, and this project post about it, made my day BETTER. Therefore, you just made the world incrementally better, and I think you ought to get honorary superhero status, as well.
