As it was a birthday present and the big day has passed, I can show you some photos of one of the cryptic crafting projects- a cape! Modelled with initial reluctance and then gusto by my boys:
From Growing Up Sew Liberated by Meg McElwee, this was an easy pattern to follow and took me two evenings. I had the fabrics in my collection already and the glazed coconut button was a present which has been awaiting just the right project. It’s a lovely shade! The cape is reversible, although the button should be further on the edge, or another placed on the inside, for that to really be the case. But I figure the floral side will be the most appealing to the recipient anyway. Otis looks like a little university dean:
There’s a hood, but this could be left off to make the cape more superhero, if required, and it has a brilliant twirl factor.
Happy Birthday Holly! Hope you like it!
