Materials Needed:

  • 3/4-yard red satin or cotton fabric (for cape)
  • 9" x 11" yellow craft felt (for shield)
  • 9" x 11" blue craft felt (for letter)
  • red thread
  • yellow thread
  • blue thread
  • 1-3/4" Velcro
  • rotary cutter or scissors
  • cutting mat
  • ruler
  • sewing machine
  • computer to print out letter
  • pins

Step 1

Create a rough pattern by folding cape fabric in half and cutting out the following measurements. Length: 27 inches from top to bottom. Width: 11 inches on the fold. To create a space for the child's neck, cut out a three-inch long by one and a half inch wide hole beginning two inches (this will create the closure) down from the top of the cape.

Step 2

Serge raw edges and turn edge under to create a finished hem.

Step 3

Add Velcro to neck closures. Tip: Soft side of Velcro should be sewn facing down on wrong side of fabric and hook side goes right-side-up so it is not touching child.
