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