Picture of Easy No-Sew Vampire Cape

This is the fastest and easiest way to make a vampire cape.  No sewing skills needed!  Just get fabric, some fusible tape, some ribbon and an iron, and you're ready to go.  This cape looks great in any color.

Note: this Instructable was made a while ago, when I had a less-than ideal camera.  Also I forgot to take notes back then, so this is sort of a trip down memory lane where I look at pictures and try to interpret what the heck I was doing.  Here we go!
