Felt Vampire or Prince Cape for Ken -Picture Tutorial

This cape for Ken (or Barbie, or action figure dolls) is made from one piece of felt and it doesn't even require a pattern. A couple quick folds and sewing or weaving a piece of ribbon through the collar gives it shape and holds the cape on the doll. This project comes together in minutes adding fun to Halloween play or would be a cute cape, in any color, for a prince doll.

Ken says he thinks he'll be a vampire for Halloween this year,
beware of neck nibbles😎

Directions:
Lay the doll in the center of the short side of the felt.
You'll want the felt up to the top of his ears.

Fold the felt down over each shoulder while leaving the back as high as the top of his ears.

Fold the two corners back a bit, only take it to the bottom of his chin. 
Add a little glue to each side to keep the folds in place.
This creates shape and allows the cape to lay flat in front.

Ribbon can be added with a needle or you can cut little holes in the felt and weave it through with your fingers.
Either way, run a wide stitch around the doll's neck.
My ribbon was 1/8" thick and 12" long, I do suggest making it longer.

Aim for it to be more evenly spaced and neater than mine, but you get the idea😉

Snug the fabric up on the ribbon creating a collar, and tie around the doll's neck.
Wa-la!
Or as Dracula might say... Va-la!
