Making these capes are super easy!!!! first you need fabric.. I picks a satin with glitter from the costume fabric section but about any fabric would do.
I bought 6 yards and cut very carefully to get twelve capes for children in elementary school. If you want a long cape get a yard and you will have extra fabric other wise 1/2 a yard is enough for one cape
If you have a cutting mat and rotary cutter the cutting is easier however scissors work just fine!
for the ties I held two strands of 4 ply yarn together and made a long chain using a J hook the chain measures 46 inches. if you don't know how to crochet using 1/2 inch thick ribbon works too, however yarn is cheaper!
if you want to prevent fraying you need to fold 1/4 inch and pin and sew around the entire cape.
since I had to make so many I skipped this step
fold the top end of the cape over the yarn tie, make sure the tie is centered
Enjoy your new cape!
