I let the kids pick out one solid fabric and one print fabric. Harper picked a hot pink essex linen and Jonah picked Kona navy. They both picked Ann Kelle prints for the lining (love her fabric!) so we got started on them yesterday afternoon.
I actually found the tutorial for these at Ann Kelle's website, so it was perfect that my kids picked her fabrics :) I followed the tutorial except I made the edges at the bottom of the capes rounded.
They turned out a tad big, but they will grow into them.
I was happy that Jonah chose the whale print without any prompting from me.
Harper loves green almost as much as she loves pink, so this print was perfect for her. Can you tell she dressed herself today?
And I was happy to put some fabric from my stash to good use - as sad as I am to see it used up, I need to make room for new fabric :)
