  • How to make a capelet. Diy Large Bow Capelet - Step 1
    Step 1

    Measure the width and height for the neck. Subtract 2 cm from both measurements. Measure how long you want the cape to be and add 2 cm extra to it. Mine was 15 inches so I had to cut 16 inches. Cut out a piece out of the fleece fabric, its width should be double the length of the cape and length should be exactly the length of the cape. I had to cut 32 X 16 inches fleece fabric.

    Fold the fleece fabrics' width into half. Use a chalk to mark the neck and the main pattern of the cape (see picture). Cut along the marked lines. Similarly cut 3 more pieces. You can use a different fabric for the lining but since I wanted a real warm capelet I used the same fleece fabric for the lining.

    After cutting the neck and main pattern of the fleece unfold them. Take any one of the 4 pieces and place the fleece fabric (unused) under it. Mark and cut out a rectangular piece out of it making sure its width is 3 inches more than the cape's width. This piece will be used to make the bow. Cut another small fleece fabric for the center piece of the bow.
