The simple magic of the Traveller Cape pattern is its simplicity; slip it on for warmth getting to and fro, and watch them transform into whomever their heart desires. 

Before they take the throne in a land of enchantment, before they set off into the woods with a band of knights, they don a cape and stand tall, heads held high towards the clouds.

Easy to make and easy to wear, it indulges kids' fairytale-esque ways.  Everything from cloak length costumes, to an everyday alternative to a coat, this pattern does it all.  

Nothing makes a child's imagination soar quite like a cape...

A Cape for my Daughter

My 10 year-old daughter decided to be a moon goddess for Halloween. The traveler cape was the perfect addition to her costume. I made it using a shimmery navy blue satin from Joann’s Fabrics. The directions were easy to follow and I especially appreciated Twig and Tale’s blog post that guided me with lengthening the pattern.

Dress Up Answered

I LOVE this pattern. My daughter and her friend requested an Elsa Cape for Christmas. I am in the process of making them and the Pattern is so easy. I just LOVE this pattern and as an Experienced Beginner I find it so easy following the step by step system.

Great for dress-up!

My kids wanted capes for at home and also to play dress-up or use for costumes. We did it in a stretch velvet and it worked out great. Nice and warm and swishy!

Hero cape needed? Twig and tale to the rescue!

When your 5 year old granddaughter needs a hero cape, you go searching for a pattern. Thankfully I found Twig and Tales traveller cape! I needed to add a widows peak at the front of the hood, as she wanted to be Raven. Between this pattern and my husbands 3D printing skills, we produces a pretty darn good cape for her costume.
Thank you for a great, easy to sew pattern!

This may turn out to be the most useful of all my T&T patterns.

I have just completed my first traveller cape and love how it turned out.
As I have 8 grandchildren all young , I can see this pattern being used often for everyday wear but also for whimsical “dress ups.”
We are a family that loves to take every opportunity to “ dress up”.
The pattern is quick and easy, and like all the T&T patterns I have used goes together well and has clear instructions.
I have just completed my first traveller cape and I am delighted with how it turned out.
Thankyou to Tracey for the blog about adding a fur trim to the
Hood.
I have submitted some pictures.
When I can get a photograph of my granddaughter wearing it I will submit that too.

Upcycled Traveller Cape

I absolutely love this pattern! I have been searching for 4 years, thank goodness I finally found Twig and Tale:)
The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I have made two upcycled vintage blanket capes with free motion embroidery embellishment and two red velvet capes cut out ready to sew :).

Test run on old tablecloth decides it—going to cut the next out of wool!

This was a lot of fun to sew, and very clear directions. My old sewing machine was purring. I had gotten an embroidery machine recently and wanted to try out a couple mushroom designs so added those in. I used some flannel for lining and that seemed to work really well. The linen table cloth fabric not so well but I think that was because I used a serger to finish the seams, after I sewed it up. Next time I’ll serge the pieces before I sew so I can iron them out. Or maybe just pink.
