My 50 cents Cape

Last week when I was at the library, I decided to stop by the “sewing/fashion” section and browse around! I was able to score some amazing books (great for beginners and more advanced seamstresses or DIYers like me 🙂 )

As you may have guessed, that’s why I went thrifting for fabric last Saturday! (Haul post here)

My first project came from this book:

There are a total of 10 different projects in this book, and each one of these projects has 8 variations! It’s a very inspiring book, even if you are not looking for any inspiration! Plus the step by step instructions are so easy to follow, that t makes sewing and designing  a lot more fun!

I chose this cape as my first project. And my 50 cents of wool were perfect for it!

The amount of fabric was just right! I spent about 3 hours on Sunday night working on this:

I couldn’t be more proud! But it’s not over yet! I have some nice velvet that I want to use to decorate the cape, but I want to ask your opinion, so please take a minute and vote:

I hope you are as in the mood for the new Hobbit or a re-run of The Lord of the Rings as I am 😉
