|If ever a lesson needed you to get the fabric out it’s this one. While you can make your own capes quite easily I recognise that’s a bit more fabric than many groups want to be working with, so here is a super simple cape to make for King Saul.|
|Print out one template page per 2 children – you’ll also need a fabric that doesn’t fray (I used felt), glue and some thick cardboard.
For printing in full colour PDF – 1 page
For printing with no colour PDF – 1 page
|roughly cut round the back of King Saul and mount this paper on card.
(note if you want to save time use the front instead and discard the back)
|Cut round the outline of the shape only.|
|Repeat this process with the broach that holds the cloak in place.|
|Cut out the front of King Saul and glue over the blank side.|
|Make 2 slits along the hairlines and bend the hair slightly forward, this will help position and hold the robe.|
|Cut out the robe template and lightly glue or clip onto fabric so it can be cut out.|
|Wrap the cloak round King Saul sliding it under the hairline to hold it in place. The long thin piece reaches his right shoulder. Add a drop of glue to the fabric to hold it in place then glue the broach on.|
