Step One

Fold fabric in half width wise, then again width wise. Place on table with folded edge facing towards you.

Step Two

For ties: Measure two inches in from the left hand side and cut. Repeat. Set aside.


Step Three

On the right side measure seven inches up from the bottom fold and mark. Place ruler from the seven inch mark diagonally to the upper left hand corner of fabric and mark. Now cut along the diagonal line making two cape shapes.

Note: you can scallop or fringe cut the bottom of the cape for a different design or to shorten the length.


Step Four

Place one tie strip horizontally on the table and center the top of the cape shape over the tie strip. Fold the entire tie strip in half, lengthwise, and pin sandwiching the cape. Sew strip together using ¼ inch seam allowance. Repeat for other cape.


Step Five

Add symbols or embellish as desired. We used a bright yellow star cut from another piece of oly*fun™ material.


Note: Pattern makes two capes
