I am not very crafty and don't know how to use a sewing machine, but I would like to make or have someone make a cape for my 3 1/2 year old. I want it to be his own special cape and not a superman or batman type cape that I could buy. I posted about this on a local natural mamas yahoo group and someone offered to make a satin cape with a big D or somesuch on it for me for $25- $30 depending on fabric I want. I'm wondering if this is a reasonable price, if I could possibly make such a thing with no experience and what kind of fabric would be best. My dad does have a sewing machine and a little bit of sewing skills, so I could enlist his help. Any advice or tips would be welcome.

Your basic cape is very simple to make. Take a square piece of fabric, fold over at the top about 6 inches roughly, about an inch down from the fold sew a straight line. This will make a casing for ribbon to go through to make the tie. I like to stitch the ribbon in place at the center so it won't pull out.
And VOILA you have a cape.
