Nephew Gifts: Check
I decided to make capes for my nephews this year for Christmas. It was super easy and I know they'll get a lot of use out of them. I used flannel, because it was on sale mostly. I appliqued the monogram emblems together using iron-on fusing and then topstiched around them to secure them. As a side note, when doing letters, next time I would trace the letter, cut it out in a square, do the iron-on and then cut out the letter. I accidently nearly fused the letter to the ironing board because I cut the letters out first and then attached a square of iron-on fusing. Anyway. I hemed the edges and then made ties and attached them. I took me perhaps 4 hours to do all three.
