DIY | Simple, no-sew Capes for Boys & Girls

I’ve been wanting to make my son a cape for a couple years now. I bought some awesome superhero fabric recently and then realized his sister would probably love a cape as well. These were so simple and No-Sew! A super, easy project and it took no time at all.


You will need:

//fabric: I used felt on one side,
cotton on the other.
//glue gun
//pompoms or anything you want to use
to embellish the cape.

Step 1. Measure your child to know how long and wide you need the cape to be. Cut out both fabric pieces.
I didnt mind having my edges a little frayed on my fabric, but you can sew yours if you choose to.

Step 2. Place ribbon in-between the fabric, at the top of the cape.. Glue in place.

Step 3. Glue pieces together. I started at the top and went across like pictured above. Smooth down as you go so fabric will not bunch. I did a row at a time and then went back around the edges to make sure they were glued in place.

Step 4. Determine how long you need your ribbon and then glue your velcro onto the ends of your ribbon. I didn’t get a picture doing this, but I’m sure you get the idea. I chose velcro instead of tying around there neck since its a little safer.
5. Decorate the cape if you choose. For E’s, I didn’t add anything to decorate since the fabric is so busy. For A’s, I added pompoms on the top and at the bottom. I bought them by the yard for a dollar or so. I loved the fun they add to her cape!

They both really loved them and played together all morning 🙂
