Remember that boy we introduced you to earlier in the week with his cowboy quilt? Did we mention it was his birthday recently? Oh, we did? Well, did we mention that he l.o.v.e.s. cowboys? Oh, we did? Well, when a boy loves something as much as this boy loves cowboys, it’s easy to know what to make him for his birthday!
So while mom was making Thomas’ quilt I decided that I would like to make him a birthday present too. And ever since we made our Not A Skirt ebook, he had been asking for a cape like the one I made. So I finally got an excuse and time to make him one. Anyway a while back I had been looking through ‘the girls’ closet, and I found a not so great skirt that had cowboys and Indians on it.
Step1: Cut skirt off above the denim about 2 inches.
Step 2: Cut skirt open along one side seam.
Step 3: Fold over and finish edges of skirt.
Step 4: Cut out hood pieces. (We used the pattern pieces from this rain jacket, but you can just eyeball a hood shape!)
Step 5: Fold over top edge of denim 2 times, sandwiching hood into the last fold and sew a new hem across the top. (Make sure to situate your hood the right way before you sew!)
