A great pattern. It took no time at all to make several of these capes and I've got a feeling I'll be making many more!!

made these for my kids at Christmas! They love them and have many hours of "imagination" play making many new adventures! Made for friends kids too and all love them!
Very easy to follow and takes no time at all.

I LOVE this pattern! Just bought it the other day and made two of the capes already. Easy to understand directions. Can be made in a day. My boys love them! Thank you so much.
