Quick cape

I lost my sewing "mojo" a while back and I needed to get it back. So, I took a break for a while. But I needed to find a quick project to get myself back into sewing. As luck would have it, G Street Fabrics had a Fashion Fabrics Sewing club meeting a couple of weeks ago. This month's meeting featured capes and a quick way to make one. Esther, who ran the meeting, made a stunning cape from a designer plaid wool.



I wanted to use her same basic idea, but with a much less expensive fabric. I had some fleece at home that I decided to use to make something similar. I didn't put buttons on the front of mine and I added a collar, but not the double collar that she has on hers.  Mine is much simpler and more casual, but now I know how to make another with more details if I choose to do so.






Now, I need to focus my sewing on some gifts I have in mind to make (place mats). And I have a cape pattern I want to make. Happy sewing everyone!
