Little Red Riding Hood/Big Bad Wolf reversible play cape

December 22, 2013

Hello, hello!

First of all I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who commented on my last post – you are all so kind!  It was lovely to get such great feedback, it put a big smile on my face.

Today I want to show you some Christmas present sewing.  I made the play cape from the book ‘Growing Up Sew Liberated’ for my daughter.  She is 3 and has very good imagination and recently has been getting into dressing up and pretending to be different characters.

The cape is designed to be reversible, so I decided to make one side red and the other in a wolfy-fabric.  I don’t think that’s the technical term though.

I used plain red cotton, and then grey fleece.  So Little Tweedie will be able to put the cape on and pretend to be Little Red Riding Hood, and then whip it off and put it back on the other way around and pretend to be the Big Bad Wolf.

I’m very much looking forward to seeing her in it, and watching her first performance!  I have saved some of the grey fleece fabric to add on wolf ears – I can’t put them on now because I’m not sure exactly where it will sit on her head. We got her a special pop-up version of the book to go with the cape, to remind her of the story (she has several versions already but not a standalone book).

Cute ladybird button!

In a way I’m kind of jealous.  Dressing up capes are awesome!  I intend to make more of these as gifts for the children of friends 🙂
