How to Make a Cape

Measure for the hood.

Rain Blanken
Lay your yard of fabric out on a large space. A living room floor works great. Measure a 30" x 15" rectangle in one corner of the fabric. Mark this rectangle with your chalk and cut it out. This will be the hood of the cape.

If you want an extra-droopy hood and larger cape, measure the hood as 35" x 20" instead.

Next, measure the length of the cape.
