Thanks to LoopedyLoop who inspired me to make one of these. I went straight to my magazine after I saw hers. This came together so easily. The hardest part was deciding what to do with the "blank canvas" and trying to find a red to match the pom pom trim.

I love this! The bird is great. Did you machine or hand applique it? I am very impressed by the teeny detail.

I used flannel, fused it with iron on adhesive, sealed the edges then did a straight stitch on my machine. If only I felt more comfortable with my free motion skills it wouldn't have taken me 20-30 minutes to stitch it!

This was in the latest Ottobre issue. but there are many cape patterns out there by the standard pattern companies. the only difference is the hood on this one is pointy.

Simplicity 4054 is pretty similar. If you use fleece then you don't have to finish the edges because they don't fray. Just use a ribbon at the neck and pompom fringe and you've got basically the same thing

That's gorgeous! I just made a red fleece version last night, sans pom poms. It really was easy!Except when I sewed the front of the hood to the top of the cape.  Roll Eyes (So *that*'s why they have pattern marks.)

Love, love, love your applique.
