Frozen Cape Tutorial
This Frozen Cape is so easy to make! No sewing or glue is required.
Frozen Cape Supply List
To figure out how much fabric you need, measure the number of inches from the top of the shoulders down to the length you would like the cape to be. Then, add 6″ to that number and round up to the nearest 1/4 yard measurement. This is your yardage.
- 2 yards of matching ribbon (3/4″ or 1″ wide)
- Fabric Scissors
- Measuring tape or yardstick
Step 1: Measure & Cut Bottom Cape Layer
- Fold your fabric in half matching the salvage edges.
- Cut the fabric in half along the fold line.
- Set one piece of fabric aside to use later.
- Verify the length you want for the cape by measuring from the top of the shoulder down to the desired length. Add 2″ to that measurement and that is the length to cut the cape.
- With the salvage on your left side, measure down the length of the fabric in a few places. Connect the marks to draw a straight line.
- Cut your fabric along that line.
Step 2: Round the Bottom Corners
- Place your paper plate along the bottom corner of the cape, and use your sharpie to draw the curve.
- Cut along the line with your fabric scissors.
Step 3: Measure and Cut Cape Hood
- Take the piece of fabric you set aside earlier, and lay it flat with the salvage along the left-hand side.
- Measure the length of the bottom of the fabric, and divide it in half. Take your string, and tie on the sharpie at that exact length.
- Hold the other end of the string at the midpoint on the bottom edge of your fabric. Pull the string taught, and draw an arc from one bottom edge of your fabric to the other.
- Cut your fabric along the line, and you will have a half circle.
Step 4: Measure and Cut Slits in Hood and Cape
- Use your yardstick or measuring tape and sharpie to make a small mark every 1″ across the top edge of both the top and bottom cape pieces. The marks should be 2″ into your fabric.
- Fold your fabric along the marks, and make a small slit at every mark. The slits should only be about 1/2″ long.
Step 5: Weave Ribbon Into Cape
- Lay the top cape layer on the bottom cape layer, lining up the slits.
- Take your ribbon and weave it up and down through both cape layers.
Step 6: Gather the Cape on the Ribbon
- Once you have woven the ribbon through the top of the cape, gather the cape up in the middle.
You finished your Frozen Cape!
All you have to do is tie it around your neck. As a bonus, the second layer can be pulled up over your head as a hood.
