I just love a good blanket cape. It has it all: the coziness of a blanket, the ability to be worn as a scarf, and (because it has no sizing) the versatility to be thrown over a winter coat for extra protection from the elements.
Last week, while wearing my favorite plaid blanket cape (pictured above), a friend of mine asked where she could find one like it. Well, I thought, since the design is so simple, why not make one? And so was born the Crossroads DIY Studio!
What you will need
a. A blanket or piece of fabric at least 3 feet by 4 feet. The bigger the piece of fabric, the longer or wider your cape will be.
c. Measuring tape
d. Chalk (not pictured)
e. Needle and thread
1. Fold your blanket in half horizontally.
5. Finish the raw edge with a standard blanket stitch. How-to video here.
