Little Red Riding Hood

After buying the Tessuti Cape pattern for myself I thought one of the girls might like a cape and remembered that the Oliver & S book Little Things to Sew had a pattern in it for a Red Riding Hood Cape.
I made the smaller size (which says up to size 4) for Eva who has just turned 4. I used a quilted fabric from the stash for the outside as I wanted something that would really keep her warm. The lining is a cotton from the stash which looks suspiciously like a Liberty fabric, but is definitely not, it feels different and the print on the real Liberty is a lot smaller I think. I have no idea where I got it from, maybe a op shop or it could even have been Spotlight.
This is a pretty simple pattern and the instructions are easy to sew. The only alterations was making the holes for the arms a little big bigger after trying it on Eva.
