The Little Red Hens Hooded Play Cape – Free DIY + PDF {+ Tips for Cutting Slippery Fabric}

The Little Red Hens Hooded Play Cape - Free DIY + PDF

Lynn Harris of The Little Red Hen shares her pattern and a description of how these versatile play capes for kids go together.  

These capes don’t have to be sewn with slippery fabrics.  You can create them using winter fleece, athletic fleece, or any woven fabric that is warm enough for your little one and has some sort of soft drape.  If you still want to use satin or anything slippery and you’re hesitant to cut, watch the videos below to possibly save yourself hours of frustration.
