A Cape

My granddaughter is getting into superheros.  And she wanted a cape so she could be batgirl.  So what's a grandmother to do?  Make a cape of course!
I devised my own pattern which is really outside of my comfort zone, but it worked well.  I love when these things go together with ease.  I found the batman fabric in my stash.  (The salvage showed the date as 1995, so I think it has aged long enough.)  I made the neck part of the pattern on newspaper using a dinner plate and a luncheon plate.  At the mini retreat I cut out the cape and realized I forgot to bring my velcro.  So finished it up at home on Sunday.  I know she's going to love it.
