Red riding hood cape

I made this cape from a man's turtleneck sweater, by felting it in the washing machine first, then cutting the yoke part in an arc, then cutting up the front. The turtleneck part then became the hood, but it was a little short, so I gathered up the cape with wool about 4cm below the hood. I lined the hood in red riding hood fabric (which I meant to take an up close picture of) which I also covered a button with. It fits both girls, so it should be good for dress ups for a few years.
