Step 1: Materials
-At least one and a half yards outer material, such as fleece
-equal amount of lining material (optional but it will be warmer)
-measuring tape, parking pens, scissors, sewing accoutrement, iron
Sculpey air dry glaze
-paint tray, xacto knife, paint brush, cornstarch or talcum powder
-fine gauge craft wire, needlenose pliers
Step 2: Measure For the Cape
Next, trace a circle on your material using the measuring tape or a string for the radius, by anchoring one end of the tape in the middle and marking all around, then cutting out the circle. Do the same for the lining material if you are using it.
Fold the circle in half and cut it so that you have two halves of a circle.
For the hood, find a hood that fits your child and lay it over the fabric, trace around the shape and cut out two pieces.
Measure the bottom edge of the hood piece, divide this measurement by two.
Fold the two halves of the circle in half, and cut the corner off, using the hood measurement as the guide, as shown in the picture. The hole should be a diamond and each side should be 1/2 as long as the bottom edge of the hood piece.
Use the pieces as a template to cut out lining materials to match each piece.
