VariablePenguin's Fabric Patterns

Posted in Custom Workstation

Here's were I will be posting patterns if anyone is interested. I've gotten a few coats from people and have copied some of the patterns.

Some tips:
-Go slowly when sewing. If you rush, you might just mess everything up.
-Use thin fabric. Don't expect to sew thick wool into a small pattern that will fit a figure.
-Cut fabric pattern bigger. If you think it's not going to fit, cutting it bigger allows for more adjustment than having to constantly recut. That said, these patterns have been increased in size to help.
-Try it on. Nothings worse than spending a few hours making something and it won't fit your figure.
-If you need tips or help, ask away!

If I list them as a tuturial, I wouldn't have as much control as I do here.

Oh, and I just posted the Superman Cape one. It's higher up the messages on the first page.

Superman Cape / Shoulder Cape

This one is really easy to do. I've included some very basic instructions on how to do it in the picture.


A neat thing you can do is put a wire in the hems and you can make it poseable!

Well my next couple projects will involve Superman-esque capes, but I'd love to see them all. Look forward to it.

Moon Knight Cloak / Cloak




I cut down the size on the image because I didn't want you to have to use legal paper to print a 12" pattern. This should print on a regular 8.5 x 11 piece of paper fine.

Try linking to it off-site (imageshack)

These will be useful @_@

I'm using Photobucket and it only allows 800 X 600 as the biggest.

OR... nevermind, I see that I can adjust that.
