This year for halloween my mom wanted to be Little Red, our provincial phone company's mascot of sorts.
Even though we have a giant box of costumes at home, we were lacking a red cape! Can you believe it?
So what are two crafty ladies to do? Make it of course! My mom was in charge of making her own skirt and I was in charge of the cape. She picked up a house coat and fleece blanket from the thrift store to make both.
Here's my photo tutorial for the cape! If I forgot anything, or if you have question let me know!
**Cut 2, with the finished edge on the "front/face" part of the hood**
This could always be done with something other than fleece, but I found with this blanket you have a nice finished edge and there was no need to finish seams because it's fleece.
