DIY No Sew Frozen Cape

Surprise Me!

This No Sew Frozen Cape can be made in about 15 mins! Lets say thirty minutes if you have to run to the store for the felt.  Bella was invited to a Frozen Birthday party and was asked to go in character.  She decided to go as Olaf and I made a nose.  After she saw the nose she said, “I would rather be Anna!” Oh No!  I looked at the clock and had 45 mins before the party started. I went to the fabric store and grabbed some felt and came home and cut and glued and she arrived as Anna right on time for the party!
