A Cape Fit for a Princess

Dear Daughter (DD) asked if I would make youngest granddaughter a cape so that she could wear it as part of her birthday attire. 

DD said she thought that the birthday girl might wear a yellow princess dress; but, that any color would be fine.

This granddaughter loves a rainbow; she doesn't settle on one color. She also is partial to kitties. So the party theme is Rainbow Kitty Super Princess or something like that.

This is what I stitched. I know the cape was much loved because there was so much twirling and giggling involved and thus the out of focus photo! Below is a photo after about half an hour of play!


               
She is wearing the cape on her birthday invitation and DD says that there are times when it is ABSOLUTELY necessary that the cape come out to play! Ahhh, what a simple gift to make an almost two year old's playtime fun!

 Next week, I'll be back on quilting related topics!

    1. Karen, I was fortunate that I found the fabric and trim at a 50% off sale of already reduced fabrics at our Fabric Depot. (FD is a fabric store that has EVERYTHING!) There was enough to make the cape and maybe something later for sister! Thank you!!--Terry

  7. All of my Grandkids love capes! Super hero, Princess, or an Imaginary character that wears a cape, they make them from towels if necessary. Gotta love kids and their imaginations.
    PS thanks for stopping by my blog. I just finished off quilting a 'turning 20' for a client that dropped it off today. I'll see her again for a meeting on Wednesday, and I wanted to be able to return it,, silly me. So, my remake of the 20" center star block got put on hold for a day or two.
    So it goes,

    1. It is a slick, but quiet fabric. I didn't think the mom and the dad would appreciate fabric sounds in addition to the super hero/princess sounds!! --Terry
