Magician Cape for my Nephew

Well…with help from my mom, I made up the last of my nephew’s Christmas present ~ a Magician Cape…to go with his top hat, wand, and magic tricks.

He loves green so I found a very deep green crushed velvet material for one side and a shiny black for the other. I just winged it for the pattern after looking on-line for some ideas. It’s 30″ long and 36″ wide with a curve at the bottom and tapered to the top with a 3″-4″ collar.

As I’ve said before…I hate sewing clothes. So my mom took the hint that she should sew it together for me…I could have, but it’s stretchy material and I thought I’d have trouble with it. THANKS MOM! Then she top-stitched it too.

We decided that the green should be on the outside…not hidden on the inside! So Nate will be a snazzy looking magician ~ more Merlin-like! 🙂 Especially when I dug out some green and gold Celtic ribbon that I had…sewed that onto the collar, added two great looking buttons and some gold cording. And the ends of the cording I added gold bead spacers and two frosted gold glass beads.
