Dance Capes

Directions

1. Sketch ideas for special events to celebrate on scrap paper. You can draw pictures of things that really happened, or show imaginary events.

2. Spread out the fabric and imagine how your drawing will cover it.

3. Draw the important shapes from your sketch onto fabric scraps and cut them out.

4. Arrange the fabric shapes on the larger fabric piece. Glue them in place. Let dry.

5. Glue buttons and sequins to the cape designs. Let dry.

6. To wear the cape, simply tie the top 2 corners around your neck.
