How to Sew a Magician’s Cape

How to Sew a Magician's Cape

Back in March my mother in-law took my nephew to our local repertory theater to see a child’s play. The play’s main character was a magician. My five year old nephew, Nicholas, loved the play and all of a sudden wanted to be a magician. After the show they passed by the merchandise table and my mother in-law splurged and purchased a magician’s hat for my Nicholas. He really wanted the cape but she just couldn’t fathom spending a lot of money on a cape that he was probably only going to wear a few times. The next day, she called me and asked me if I wouldn’t mind sewing a cape for my nephew’s birthday. I was 36/37 weeks pregnant at the time and although tired I agreed to sew the cape. I finally got to take my serger for a spin and my new sewing machine that I bought last year!

This was my first actual projects I sewed using both. I used a yard of fabric and iron-on vinyl to create an easy-to-sew magician’s cape! So whether you have a five year old who is obsessed with magic or you are looking for a fun and easy DIY Halloween costume–this is the tutorial for you!
