Step 1: Supplies
Fleece- 1 to 2 yards for adults, 1/2 yard for babies
Sewing supplies/sewing machine- Needle, thread, pins, sewing machine (optional). I've made this cape both with and without a machine, and both ways turned out nicely.
Button or Closure
Step 2: Cut and hem hood
Step 3: Cut cape
Fold the fabric in half widthwise, right sides out, and lay flat. Decide how long you want your cape to be, measure that height on the fabric and cut in a straight line across to trim of the excess fabric (I used a rectangle approximately 25 by 18 inches for the baby cape).
Trim the bottom and front edges of the fabric so that the bottom front corner of the cape is rounded. Keep the top edge of the cape straight and even.
