Tutorial: Blair Waldorf Capelet!

In fact, I didn't even know who Blair Waldorf was until someone mentioned her in a comment several posts ago. Well I Googled her, and the girl's got style! I was particularly inspired by this photo of her in the cutest capelet ever. Obviously, I had to make my own..... While this is not a no-sew project, like my last cape, it's almost as easy!

1) I started with a long rectangle of delicious fabric (that my mom got for $.75 at a thrift store!) 2) Then I pleated the top. 9 pleats, aprox. 2.5" each, and right up against each other, leaving about 5" on each side. 3) I sewed a basting stitch along the top of the pleats, to hold them together.... 4) Then I trimmed the two front edges to make them curved. 5) Measure from one end of the cape to the other (minus the top), and cut the length of ribbon you need. 6) Sandwich the edge of the cape in the middle of the ribbon, and pin well. 7) Sew the ribbon on. 10) Hand stitch them on.

New Green Mama: Anthro Inspired Scarf Tutorial

After you have your sweater and fabric picked out, make your pattern. If your sweater is big enough you can line your pattern up on the fold to create one long piece. If you cut 2 pieces, sew them together like I did below. Then I folded my contrasting fabric in half and placed the sweater piece on top. I cut the lining fabric a little bigger in case the sweater stretched a little bit while sewing the pieces together. Place the sweater and lining fabric together with right sides facing. Then sew all the way around leaving a 3 inch gap for turning. Trim up the edges and clip the curves. Take one end and scrunch it together. Take a 5 inch piece of sweater and sew the ends together to create a tube. Turn right side out. You are done. This is for personal use only. Embroidery Designs at Urban Threads. T Shirt Bolero.
