Today I'm participating in Twig and Tale's Upcycle Tour.
I love a good upcycle and often use adult size clothing found in thift stores or sheets for making clothes for Thomas. So, I was very excited to join in on this tour. Today, For today's Twig and Tale upcycle, I used the Little Red Riding Hood Cape. But instead of a cape, I created a swim cover.
Thomas and I are in love with this! I used 2 full size bath towel for my "fabric".
I placed the front edge of the front pattern piece along the existing hem of the towel. This allowed me to also use the towel detailing along the front of the cloak adding some interest to the front of the cover.
I also used the hem for the front of the hood. The bottom of the cloak was finished by simply serging the raw edge with matching thread. No hemming made this a really fast project!
Thomas is 6 years old and 52" tall, so for an oversized cover, sure to keep him cozy, I used the size 8-teen cloak. He is very happy with the generous sizing this gave him.
