Erica Domesek from P.S. I Made This (whose huge craft bible of a book just came out—buy here!) showed us how she makes this comfy DIY cape that's incorporated two of the season's biggest trends—camel-colored outwear and the essential cape! We suggest to get creative with buttons, and the fabric type and pattern, too—cinch it with a belt, fasten a statement brooch, or just go simple and wear it with a pair of slim-fit trousers. The steps, below!.
Needle and Thread
1. Fold blanket in half and position so the folded crease is at the top.
2. Lay a template in the center and cut along the dotted lines, making sure you don't cut through both layers of the blanket.
3. Fold the edges of the neckhole and glue down with fabric glue.
4. Sew two buttons to keep the sides closed, which create your arm holes.
