A mid 1970s cape pattern, made with 2 metres of tartan that was given to me. I am planning to use it on forays into the woods, where I will lie in wait on the forest floor for teddy bears to put their picnic on me. Then I will steal their cake and lemonade and run off.

This is a lovely cape! I see matched tartan plaid.


How does your daughter feel about your plan?! Too funny! I hope you have a lot of fun wearing your cape whatever the occasion is.

Yay you did it! I am now going to finish my Mini cape! Then I can be the blanket for the baby bears! x

Thanks for your kind (and funny) comments , it has given me a good laugh

@ eagle eyes Cathe - you have caught me, I matched 3 of the four main pattern pieces really carefully before dicovering that the last piece just was not matchable within the fabric I had left - it is the back left side that is not in the photo, of course!


@Stevie, pmsl, looking forward to seeing your baby bear picnic blanket, I mean capelet! tee hee
