DIY Child's Cape

As part of his Halloween costume, the bigger guy wanted a cape.  So we made him one with his initial on one side...

...and the littler guy's initial on the other side.

Just in case they wanted to share it.

A better idea probably would have been to make two of them, since they seem to want stuff at exactly the same time (instead of taking turns).

You can see I used a snap to close it, and reinforced the snap area with the same fabric with which I did the applique.  I attached both the reinforcing fabric and letter fabric with a zig zag overstitching the edge.  For the rest of the cape, I attached the pieced, right sides together, leaving a hole for turning, then topstitched it closed.

He likes it! Success!
