This week superhero capes have been flying out of my sewing machine! As usual courtesy of my sister in law and her party business, Quirky Queens! Can you believe it? 26 super hero’s capes flew out of my machine!
I decided to stick to the main superheroes, Batman, Superman and Spiderman, so I made 8 Superman capes and 9 each of the other two!
I found a polycotton and bought 2 yards of fabric for each cape in red, blue and black and half a yard of yellow for the Batman logo and of course a piece of Velcro to secure the cape around the neck.
I found an amazing free Super Hero Cape pattern on “Sewing with Nancy” by Nancy Zieman, really good instructions even a beginner sewer will be able to follow it. The super hero logos I found on “Vanilla Joy” a blog written by Kelsey Norwood! Sorry no Spiderman, I just made up my own!
I’m sure the world will be a better place in the future with all these Super Hero’s in training!
You did such a fantastic job on these, Nikki. I’m sure the children loved them!
They are the best capes I’ve ever seen. Well done!!!
You too kind! Thank you!
They are brilliant, my little sister loves spiderman so be brilliant to make her one 🙂
Hehe! I’m sure she will love you!
There may be a few squeals… 🙂
Anyone who can sew something that looks that real and well put together gets major kudos from me. My sewing is limited to “must do” moments! Nice job!!! I’m sure the kiddos loved them.
You so kind! Thank you!
Great links!!!! Love them!!!
How fun! I’m sure there were 26 happy children at the party.
They had great fun!
So cool. My grandson would love it if I made him a cape, maybe a future project!
It’s really such a easy thing to make! You can’t believe how much they have with it!
These look fabulous! I’m pinning them for future presents. Thanks for the link.
They worth pinning! Thanks
They look so professional – I thought you’d bought the logos, but clearly not.
We can all sleep easy now knowing that we are so well protected by all these mini superheroes. I love to see hchildren dressing up and playing. My younger 2 used to wear all in one lycra to play power rangers.
It does bring back such good memories!
Amazing Nikki… love this.. 🙂
