Ever do that? Have a momentary lapse of reason where you think, yeah that’ll be great, I’ll do that. Like making 10 Hobbit capes for someone’s upcoming birthday party. How did I think that would be a good thing? You don’t think it would be a good thing. You’re a smart person. You’re shaking your head and are thinking that’s a bad thing.
After taking an eternity to make one using the cape from Little Things to Sew by Liesl Gibson, I messed around with the pattern. I made the back and the back side pattern pieces into one piece and did the same for the front and front side pieces. I got rid of the arm holes and redrafted the hood to have only two pieces instead of three, (need to cut down on those seams, people). Now I can get 2 of those babies out in an hour.
Yeah they don’t fall as nicely and there are no arm holes but they’re for Hobbits. And Hobbits aren’t real.
