Tutorial Tuesday :: No Sew Blanket Cape by A Pair & A Spare

This winter has certainly been a cold one, even here in beautiful Southern California! When looking for tutorial that would keep me cozy and warn, but not take too much time to sew, I came across this great tutorial for a No Sew Blanket Cape by A Pair & A Spare. This look is unbelievably high-fashion, and takes hardly any time to put together!
A 2 inch wide piece at the edge of your fabric is used to make your belt! I love how the fabric drapes at an angle, but the belt stands out because it is perfectly horizontal around her waist. The best part about cutting? Knit fabric doesn't fray like wovens do so no need to hem!
Who would have guessed that a such a stylish garment would be so easy to make?!
We have so many great Hacci Sweater and Ponte Knit Fabrics that would be perfect for making this. A few of my picks from the store:
We hope you enjoy this tutorial!  We love to see what you sew up so please send 1-2 images of any project you make with Girl Charlee Fabrics to gcblog@girlcharlee.com and you might see your creation featured in our next KnitPicks!

Happy sewing!
