It all began innocently enough. An e-mail saying “Such a cute costume that I think you could get away with as a Sunday outfit” with a link to a sweet little cape tutorial. I happened to show it to my girls. Before I knew it, they were digging through our cupboard looking for the perfect material.
Within a week, and very little help from me, each girl had a new cape. Each cape reflects their owner’s personality! Audrey used fleece because it is soft and snuggly. The reverse is bright and playful. Andrea’s cape is “satin” with long bow ties to show off the contrasting inside. Megan’s cape is made with pink denim and colorful hearts in easy to wash material.
Now the girls have capes that they use for church and for dressing up. Thank you Lilly for the idea!
