I was going to make a skirt out of this fabric (brushed cotton plaid), cause I really need some new ones, but my hubby suggested a cape, and really... why not?  I modified the freebie Tonia cape pattern from Fitzpatterns.  A bit of lace trim, some beading, a few graphic rose stencils and she's all ready to go Smiley  It was surprising how warm and comfortable it is.  I may even make another one in heavier fabric.

In progress...









All finished and pretty...
