How to Make a Cape

Stitch Ties to the Cape and Finish
How to Make a Cape

Stitch ties to edges of cape.

Rain Blanken
Stitch one end of a tie to the inside edge of the cape. Repeat with the other side. Try on your finished cape and tie it around your neck.

See capes that other DIY readers have made, and be sure to upload a photo of your cape. I'll add your finished project and tips to this tutorial.


  • You can add applique patches such as suns, fairies, and moons to personalize your cape.
  • For a rough look, cut jagged edges on the bottom of your cape.
  • In the case of a princess cape, you can add eyelet or ruffles to the edges.
