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...

Great success

I wanted to make a Christmas cape to go over a tulle tiered dress for my 5 yr old granddaughter. This lovely simple easy to follow pattern ticked the boxes with ample scope for creative embellishments (next time) I had a small remnant of wool mix in my stash and a lovely piece of cotton lawn for lining added velvet ribbon and pom-poms. Granddaughter was thrilled with swishy cape to prance around in. I’m looking forward to making a lot more of these for my 3younger grand kids
Going to try adding arm slits to next one !

Really worth it and so much easier than I thought

This was a lovely item to sew. I didn't have any measurements for the child I made this for, other than an age. Silly me bought fabric with a nap, and a super slippery lining, plus a gold trim! And even with all of this the cape came together really quickly and it fits beautifully! I drafted simple cloaks before as dress-up items, but this sits so much better across the shoulders and the drape is lovely! I think i'll use the pattern next for some rainwear for my own children, it'll be perfect to put on quickly and will fit over their school backpacks.

Perfect Flower Girl Cape!

My son is to be married soon and my granddaughter is to be the flower girl. I wanted a perfect warm 'coat' to go with the liberty print dress and saw the TT Traveller Cape. What a great decision!! Very easy to follow instructions, easy to put together and I was wrapped with the result! I increased the front panels so I could add a button, and even found the perfect blue velvet button to go with the navy velvet material used.
I will definitely use the pattern to make some other capes from recycled materials for the cooler months!
Thank for Twig and Tale for again developing such an amazing pattern and allowing the TT community to enjoy their love of sewing! <3

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.
