Little Red Riding Hood – FO 11/2013

The Boy’s nursery recently asked me if I’d be willing to make a Red Riding Hood cape for an activity pack they were putting together for the children.

Of course I said yes.  They are an amazing nursery and have been fabulous with both our kids.

I used a really great tutorial I found over at Make it and Mend It and although I only grapped a quick snap as I hustled everyone out to school/nursery yesterday, I think you get the idea.

IMG_8155_edited-1I suspect I may have to make one of these for the home dressing up box as Button was rather doleful when she realised it was for nursery.  If I do I think I’ll add a little elastic in the front of the hood, sewn into the seam allowance, just to add a bit more shape.

And maybe Miss Button should have her fringe cut this week! 😉

    What a delightful addition to the dressing up box

  2. I’ve always yearned for a cape – there was an advert for an Insurance Company (something to do with a Widow and she had an amazing black cape)….so forgiving too! Don’t think I’d look as cute as Miss Button though 😉

    • Oh my…the Scottish Widows adverts! I remember those! I would love a lifestyle that encompassed the need for an opera cape. Not all the time, but every now and again. Miss Button looks like an old English sheepdog…;-)

    That is so cute and looks like a very easy and quick sewing project. I love it and I’m sure she does too.
