I recently dipped into my copy of Little Things to Sew again, for a great wee present for my niece’s 3rd birthday. I chose to make the Red Riding Hood Cape as pictured on the front cover.
I found some fantastic red cotton corduroy for the main fabric, and some matching quilting cotton for the lining. I also chose a fun wee button to hold it closed.
As always, the sewing instructions are excellent and result in a really nice finish with all the seams completely enclosed. I completed the sewing for this at my monthly sewing group, and the ladies were suitably impressed.
This will be suitable as a lightweight topper in cooler weather, or as a dress-up costume component – will have to see what the whims of a 3 year old decide!
