Learn how to make a no-sew cape out of fleece and ribbon with designer Jennifer Wiese in this Howcast video, part 5 of a 5-part series.


The first thing we're going to do is take our ribbon. It's really helpful here to use something like a safety pin, or in this case we have a paper clip. You're going to just thread the ribbon on whatever tool you're using, and you're going to use this little gadget to help you weave the ribbon in and out of the cape.

So take your cape, embellished, and you'll just lay it our flat. You'll just start taking your ribbon and weaving it in and out of your slits. You want to pull the ribbon through like so, kind of keeping everything sort of flat for the moment. You can see here how using a little tool at the end of your ribbon is very helpful for threading the cape.

OK. Now we have made it all the way through. So we're just going to pull our ribbon taut, and we are ready to tie this on a child. Before you go ahead and cut the ends of the ribbon off, obviously we have we way too much, I would just measure it on your child first. That's it. You're done with your cape.
