I have always wanted a hooded cape, but the ones at the ren faire are too expensive and well, just not me.  I am not a person to go running around in a black cape lined with crushed velvet all winter.  SO I made my own, and in my own style.  I started with this pattern
http://home.clara.net/arianrhod/Aldebaran/DoItYourself/Cloak02.html
and  did a ton of modifications so that it would work with my material and be reversable.  Plus I shortened it.  Corduroy to the floor might be a bit heavy. 
I used corduroy for one side and blue snowflake fleece for the other.  I had a scrap of super soft white fleece that I used as trim. 
I still need a clasp for it though.  And I doubt I will wear the snow flake side out, its pretty um snow flakey.
I am pretty pleased with it, and all together took me about 6 hours to do. 
anyway enough bla bla bla

I think that during the very next snowfall you should grab your cape and skip merrily down the street singing "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" then fall down giggling while you make snow angles!

That's totally what I would do if I had a snowflake cape Smiley

It's really awesome!

This looks great! How much fabric did you use?  I love that it is reversible!

Thats funny, now I just have to wait for the snow.  Although it might not cover me too well if I actually frolic in the snow.  But there may be some skipping involved.

do you have FERRETS?

Yes I also have ferrets, my pets get the run of the house and way too many toys.  The other side of my living room is full of empty boxes they claimed.

This looks great! How much fabric did you use?  I love that it is reversible!

The snow flake material I used maybe 2 yards, the cord almost 4 with a lot of scrap.  I had to alter the pattern and make sure all my cords ran vertical and not horizontal.

Thanks for all the comments Smiley  Now I have to wait for it to get back to fall around here to test it.  Its been in the 70's all week.

haha thats great. I have a ferret but theres no way he's getting run of THIS house unfortunately. when i get my own house if i have ferrets they will tho. i just think that would be so nice.
I like making the hammocks and bedding and that way they match inexpensively=)
what a cute picture btw
