Detachable Cape tutorial by Welcome to the Mouse House

Hey guys! My name is Hayley and I blog over at Welcome to the Mouse House. I am so excited to be back over here at Project Run and Play. I was a part of Season 5 and had so much fun and loved meeting new people! Here was a recap of my season: RECAP of Project Run and Play. Today, I am going to share a super easy and super FUN detachable cape that can be embellished (or not) to suit every child's imagination. Introducing The Switch Out Cape! The free pattern includes sizes 3, 6, and 9. cape 2   
 *Supplies: Yardage of felt in various colors, t-shirt, sew-in Velcro/hook and tape (soft and flexible kind is best), FREE cape pattern/tutorial HERE
*Print out the free cape pattern HERE. *Choose from size 3, 6, and 9. (Ainsley's is a size 6) *Cut the cape on the fold of the felt, as instructed on the pattern piece. 

*Open the cape up. *Sew the velcro on the back of the cape and the back of the t-shirt, using the placement on the pattern piece as a guide. Be sure to use the soft Velcro pieces for the tshirt and the scratchy pieces for the cape. (This is so that the t-shirt remains wearable even without the cape attached.)

Make lots of them in fun colors! How fun would this be for a birthday party?!

Now, here comes the fun part.... you can either leave it plain... but how great is it to embellish them! Come back to my blog in a few weeks for templates and tutorials for these fun capes.

  1. Lovely project for kids :)Kiss from Serbia,

  2. It is a cute pattern. I do wish that when a pattern is put up that is "FREE", but actually costs shipping it would say so up front. In this day and age with almost everyone owning there own printers it would be much easier to print out such a simple pattern than pay $5 to have it mailed to me. I am quite willing to pay for hard copies on complex patterns, in fact I prefer it. This one not so much!
