I made my little lady a cape recently. Lisa from Big Little has updated her classic children’s cape! Adding a rounded hood and also a collar. 3 lengths and enough inspiration to keep anyone going for years. Seriously the ideas and options are huge. Madam chose some simply awful (to sew, and apparently photograph!) minky. Ok, in fairness its super soft and snuggly. Like wearing a big hug. And – it did turn out super cute – so I’ll over look all the pin sticks I got sewing the slippery mind-of-its-own minky and try and forget the swearwords I invented.

The cape itself is a super easy sew. The pattern is easy to print and the tutorial is easy to follow and has lots of pictures (a necessity for me!) Which was great as I needed a easy, quick sew as my enthusiasm for the sewing machine has been lacking recently. This cape delivered in spades. Fast, check. Simple, check. Beautifully finished, check! 

It has the perfect combination of whimsey and fairytale with function and a great fit. This cape has had SO much use .. from the second it came off the machine. And not just for play either, madam has been wearing it instead of her usual coat or body warmer!

Lisa is currently promoting the cape and its on offer! Pop by Etsy and grab it. If you use the code CHILDCAPE until sunday is only $7!! And in time for Halloween too 😉

If you pop to the Big Little Facebook page there are some amazing examples of what other people have done with this pattern, it’s fabulous.

    The cape looks gorgeous, and if Nim becomes a keen sewer in the future she will then appreciate what a wonderful, kind Mum you are to have put up with that slippery fabric! I hate sewing with anything like that. I found a pair of huge red curtains in a charity shop for next to nothing the other week, the fabric looks like it would hang beautifully in a cloak (I guess curtain fabric is generally going to be good for ‘hanging’ well!) so I’m now thinking a couple of Red Riding Hood cloaks might be perfect for 2 nieces for Christmas.
