How to Make

1. Fold the length of red felt in half. This is to ensure both sides are even when you cut out the cloak.

2. Follow the measurements on the pattern and use a lead pencil to draw the outline and hem allowances of your cloak directly on to the red felt. Hem allowances of 2.5cm at the base and sides and 5cm at the neck are included in these measurements.

3. Cut out the cloak shape.

4. Use an iron to press under the hem allowance on both sides of the cloak. Insert a strip of hemming web into the hem and press to bond the hem together.

5. Make snips into the base hem allowance at intervals all along the hem. This allows easier pressing of a curved hem. Press the hem. Insert a strip of hemming web in to the hem and press to bond the hem together.

6. Make a single snip in to the neck hem allowance at the centre point. Press under the hem. Insert a strip of hemming web in to the hem along the edge, leaving a gap wide enough to thread ribbon through. Press to bond the hem together.

7. Cut two 11 cm wide strips of white felt that are the same length as the cloak edges. The easiest way to do this is to lie your cloak onto the white felt and draw around the edge.
